Bar Harbor is a great small city on the Eastern Coast that has great bird watching and historic sites to visit. Also Acadia National Park is right next door. Disability access and parking is limited, and some of the shops no disability access. You will need at least one day to visit the city.

The gateway to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor is the cute small town where most non-camping visitors begin and end their days while visiting this scenic stretch of Maine's rocky coast. It's packed during the summer, but there are enough good restaurants, cafes, shops, and sights for everyone. If you start to feel a bit claustrophobic, just walk down to the harbor where you can stroll along the coast or just watch the many sailboats pass you by. You can also kayak from here to the nearby Porcupine Islands if you really need to get away from the action. Back on land, make sure to visit Gringo's for some good, cheap Mexcian food, Lompoc Cafe for more creative and flavorful vegetarian options, Galyn's or Mama Dimatteo's for fancier dining, and the unique Reel Pizza Cinerama, where you can go to the movies and a quality pizza restaurant AT THE SAME TIME! If you have room for dessert, get in the long line at Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium or Mount Desert Island Ice Cream.

A complete tourist city during the summer, there is something so special about this town! Spend the day hopping from one ice cream window to the next, shopping for Cool as a Moose gear, and sipping on blueberry ale. Nowadays the streets carrier more well known outdoor stores such as Northface and Patagonia, but Acadia Mountain Sports is still my favorite!

A cute little town with nice restaurants and shopping. A good base for exploring Acadia National Park. Definitely worth a visit but the big drawback here is the cruise ships. If at all possible, time your visit to avoid the ships.
