If you've never been I highly suggest making the trip! It is absolutely beautiful!! A National Park on an island off the coast of Northern Maine with hiking, boating, shopping, art, amazing food and lodging to anyone's liking! I grew up camping in Bass Harbor and the Headlight (Light House) was just a walk away. Balsam and salty sea water fills the air with a scent like no other place I've been.
Here's a few highlights that I always enjoy when visiting!
~Downtown Bar Harbor~
~Bass Harbor Headlight~
~Lobster docks in every harbor, so picturesque!~
~Jordan Pond (Famous for their lawn dining and POPOVERS! with jam~
There's my favorite beach, Sand Beach, which is known for it's small sand dollars!
There's an amazing array of food, from the classic "Lobstah" shack to pub & grille to fine dining!
And the streets in the harbor towns are lined with galleries, boutiques,
home decor shops, and fun souvenir stores.
Among my favorites...
This crazy-cool gallery showcases art work by artist Russell D'ALessio
LOVE! One of these days I want to splurge and buy a piece!!
...for fun T-shirts and outerwear. Or for a sweet treat grab an ice cream...
Or head over to swanky Northeast Harbor and try baked goods from this amazing bakery!
So much to do and impossible not to relax!
You'd love it!
And I cannot wait to get there!
Oh, I'll leave you with this!...
Locally made and so delish! Especially as a float :)
