  1. We were there two years ago and even though the weather wasn’t great, the Park had a great variety of things to do and places to see. I would definitely recommend the bus tour on the first day to get a better grasp of what you can see. And a bike ride on the carriage paths is a must. Plus Bar Harbor has a great brewery and some wonderful bars. How can one go wrong!!

  2. It’s a beautiful park. The most fun I had there was hanging out for a week once when I resting up from a 10,000 mile solo bicycle trek I was on before heading to Nova Scotia and my journey back west. Good memories. –Curt
