My friends and I enjoyed taking a moment to sit still in the park while walking around the various shops and eating at a great pub nearby (Dog and Pony). We found this a great area to hang around along with the cool stores (some of them not as "touristy") and some great galleries and art as well. We found parking near the ocean trail - which is worth strolling, and it was free for 3 hours and allowed us time to enjoy the Village Green and surrounding area. Worth visiting.

Wonderful central spot to explore Bar Harbor. We rode the free shuttle from the Blackwoods Campground every day to eat in the local restaurants, sail, etc. Pretty spot also just to sit and relax a while (and people watch) and eat a snack. Lots of shops, snacks, food and drink places surrounding square and even public restrooms (very clean).

This area is the perfect hub of activity in the villiage. The Island Explorer bus is based here. You can purchase your Acadia National Park passes here and catch most busses too. The Village Green is accessible and very clean. Great atmosphere. Take advantage of the free WiFi.

Bar Harbor town and the village green is a great little vacation spot. After hiking and exploring the outdoors at Acadia, it is fun to go to town for dinner and browse the shops. Cool as a Moose makes for great t-shirts. All the typical souvenir shops abound but there are some lovely and unique places too. The atmosphere invites you to keep on strolling.
