Lobster Ice Cream

If you’ve ever cracked into a lobster and thought, “Hmm, this would be better a la mode,” then Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium in downtown Bar Harbor is your place.

Acadia-Isle-au-Haut

Isle au Haut

The park’s car-free (for visitors, anyway) island outpost in Penobscot Bay is low on traffic and amenities, big on tranquility.

Acadia Events

Rainy day fun, learning escapes, family activities, and more: a few (okay, more than a few) things to do when you’re not hiking or eating popovers.

Acadia-Seawall

The Quiet Side

West of Somes Sound, MDI sees less traffic, so you can stroll the shops and cafés of downtown Southwest Harbor without feeling like part of the throng.

Acadia-Peaks

The Peaks

They’re not Maine’s highest mountains, but there’s something undeniably majestic about Acadia’s rounded and (mostly) bald-topped peaks.
