Hitting the Bus for Acadia National Park


Getting Bussed

Getting Bussed

Ursula was just itching to get out of Bar Harbor and into the Acadia National Park. And since we would have ample time to explore the town later in the day, off we went.

One of the first things to strike a visitor is the lush green everywhere one looks. It’s almost reminiscent of a tropical rain forest with pines.

Maine Street, Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor, Maine

Or is it “Main Street?”

The town of Bar Harbor almost seems frozen in the early 20th Century. The shops and restaurant have a distinctly 1920s-1930s feel and look to them, and the fishing fleets and masted schooners offshore further enhance the effect.

One needn’t go far to escape the early 20th Century however. While many of the largish mansions on the outskirts of town retain a traditional look, there is no mistaking the modern windows and other anachronistic flourishes.
