Harbourside Drive has some spectacular vistas and is worth detouring to if you're on MDI. We took Harbor Drive to the town marina and had a great picnic lunch while watching all the boat and ferry traffic. It's a fun way to see another part of the island.

Quite place, close to trails, ocean and lakes. Located in small town. Nice place to escape Bar Harbor crowd.

Beautiful way to spend a few hours enjoying some beautiful Maine scenery. Spend som time at the harbor watching the boats come and go and people watching is always fun, too.

I assume This is Sargent drive, the drive along the southern and western coast of northeast harbor. Worth the time, but drive slow as there are so many beautiful homes to see.

Ok here's my grand tour. You start on the Acadia Park Loop Road, go past Sand Beach and Thunder Hole and Otter Point. When you get to the Stanley Brook Entrance you exit the park. At the end of the exit road you're facing the beach. Take a LEFT and follow the road around to the RIGHT at the little... More

We loved finding the south entrance to Acadia.... felt like a secret entrance to a forest. The park is amazing and we could have spent weeks exporing and hiking if we had the time.

The marina is nice and best of all you can get here the sea princess tour. You get the tickets that you previously reserved in the little visitor center in the marina. Then you just enjoy the ride, the approximation to northeast harbor is stunning, particularly the large stone walls in the west side. Be sure to watch out for... More

When you drive down the shore line and enter Northeast harbor bear left to the marina area and you will see some of the most beautiful watercraft in Maine...from large cruisers to small sailboats. There is a nice boat launch and nautical information at the marina along with ferry access to the islands. Bathroom facilities are clean and the parking... More
