Beautiful rugged scenery; lots of opportunities for hiking and biking at Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor has a lot of cool, artisanal shops-- bakeries, restaurants, cheese shops. Acadia National Park has stunning views from the top of the mountains.

Even with the busy summer season, the island seemed quiet to me. Sand Beach was way too difficult to park at (vehicles stretched quite a ways down the road for parking).

Great place for sightseeing and visiting small- town America. Go down some of the side roads and see water fals, wild life and more!
