Bar Harbor, ME, is home to various water activities. It’s a quaint little town nestled on the Atlantic Ocean where the seafood is one of the “Maine attractions.” While here, you will want to book a whale watching tour — seeing these massive mammals up-close is a thrill of a lifetime!
Additionally, the Acadia National Park has many interesting activities like kayaking, swimming, fishing, and boat tours galore. Head out for a hike up Mount Cadillac or drive up if you want to get fantastic views of the Atlantic. This year, you will need to buy a $6 ticket to drive up, though.
According to MDIslander, “The regional director of the National Park Service has approved Acadia’s plan to charge a $6 fee for reservations to drive up the Cadillac Mountain summit road between dawn and dusk from late May to mid-October.”
After a long day of sightseeing, travelers can opt to visit one of the top restaurants and cafes around Bar Harbor for coffee and dessert.
