Portland, Maine: an often-buzzed-about, lobster-lover’s paradise where waterfront industry, a dynamic local art scene, and the smell of the sea make for one of the East Coast’s finest north Atlantic escapes.
Bar Harbor, Maine, is the commercial center of Mt. Desert Island and just minutes to Acadia National Park. The downtown is a good one with plenty to see and do right by the water! (Like to take a day to visit both Acadia and Bar Harbor).
