Fall Foliage Cruise — Into Bar Harbor, Maine


Intersection of Main at Cottage, Bar Harbor

Photographically speaking, the seaside town of Bar Harbor, Maine is one of my favorite subjects regardless of the time of year. Throw in some fall foliage and the attraction is multiplied. Bar Harbor is located on Mount Desert Island, which at 108 square miles/280 square kilometers is Maine’s largest.

Today we’ll look mostly at the sights along Main Street in Bar Harbor, and over this week through next, we’ll explore the fall colors, the charms of Cottage Street, stroll along the marina along the Mt. Desert Narrows, and enjoy the best lobster roll of our trip at Paddy’s Irish Pub & Restaurant.

Because of the shallow waters off Bar Harbor, this was a tender port. So, Adventure of the Seas anchored in Frenchman Bay beyond Bar Island and Sheep Porcupine Island.

This was not our first trip into Bar Harbor (see: Bah Hahbah — It’s in Maine and Maine Street, Bar Harbor). On our previous excursion here we hit Testa’s Restaurant on the first day of lobster season. And while Testa’s was a huge hit with us, we tried a different lunch on this trip which you’ll see next week.

So, let’s now explore the sights along Main Street, Bar Harbor:
