In Hancock County, the magic of Bar Harbor... romance, adventure, the rock-bound coast and soaring granite cliffs. From the stonewall-lined and tree-covered road leading you into our village, to the sweeping vistas from atop Cadillac Mountain, there is a special mystique to Bar Harbor.
Bar Harbor is a destination for tourists from all over the world. Cruise ships are in the harbor from May through October (most often in September). Bar Harbor also hosts many long-distance cyclists, as it is the eastern terminus of the Adventure Cycling Association's Northern Tier Bicycle Route (which ends in Anacortes, Washington), and the northern terminus of its Atlantic Coast Bicycle Route (which ends in Key West, Florida).
Nestled on the east side of Mt. Desert Island, surrounded by Acadia National Park, they have welcomed visitors for over a hundred years. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park have a wide variety of offerings for visitors. There truly is something for everyone.
