planning trip to Maine

by Doreenlim

we've got 5N, 6D to make trip to Maine and possibly add Boston. Pl. advise:
1. Arrive in Portland Sat. 5th July Should we just drive up north closer to Bar Harbor or spend the night in Portland?
2. Spend 2N in Bar Harbor & Arcadia. Hotels/BB to recc?
3. Leave for Boston on 8th July - stay in cape cod area. What's the driving distance/time from Bar harbor/Portland to here? Any hotel to recc?
4. leave Cape Cod for Albany (stay with friend) on 11th July

I was there in September. I think 2 to 3 days in & around Bar Harbor will suffice. Lots to see but also nice just to slow down and eat lots of lobster!

Check out the Bar Harbor page of Dabs for tons of recommendations.

Travel Tips for Bar Harbor

The Harbor

by Stephen-KarenConn

The beautiful natural harbor in Frenchman Bay, from which Bar Harbor gets its name, is a vibrant place, especially during the summer months. There are more opportunities for sailing, whale watching, sea kayaking, sightseeing and other activities than you can take advantage of in one vacation. Bring lots of money to do the touristy things. No money; no problem. You can still have a grand time just strolling along the shore, or sitting on an oceanside bench and soaking up the ambiance of this very special place.

Frenchman Bay

by Geoff_Wright

Here's a view of Frenchman Bay, with Bar Harbor out of sight to the left, taken from the road to Arcadia National Park. There are spectacular views from this highway, running as it does along the edge of the Bay.

A Whale of a Museum!

by where2next

Most activity in Bar Harbor are on Main and Cottage Street. The Whale Museum is located on West Street about a block down from the main harbor. There was no charge, and the museum had some interesting exhibits. Maybe around a 10-15 minute visit to walk through and look at the exhibits. In the same general area is a nice art store and the Irsih music store.

From seafood to pub-grub

by diver-x about Geddy's

Geddy's has been around since 1974. Gerry "Geddy" Mitchell bought the the Surfside saloon, a hellish dive on Main St. near the water. He transformed the place by kicking everyone out and starting over. In 10 days he threw out 56 people (dropping 27 of them and putting 7 others in the hospital). He lost the 57th when an unhappy ejectee shot him in the back with a 12 gauge shotgun. Geddy survived and went on to turn his pub into a thriving business. By 1987, he sold the place to travel the world. Now travelers stop at Geddy's to get good food & drinks at a reasonable price. For lunch, I got the prime rib sandwich, which came with horseraddish, cole slaw and fries. All was excellent. The piece de resistance was a banana daiquiri, served with a plastic salimander on top. Yummy! Geddy's has an impressive beer list for those who don't care for drinks of the fruity variety. And if you go to Maine for the seafood, Geddy's has a tank full of lobsters plus a bunch of other salt-water critters on the menu.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

by Dabs about Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium

There seem to be more ice cream shops than there are residents of Bar Harbor, we couldn't walk 5 feet without being tempted by an ice cream cone on a warm September afternoon. After lunch, I knew I would have to stop and try one of these places and thought I had remembered someone suggesting Ben and Bill's which was right across from where we had lunch. I have to be honest, I would have been a little annoyed had we waited longer than a few minutes. I tried two flavors, pumpkin pie and rum raisin, the pumpkin pie had ice crystals in it, like when it gets freezer burn, I had thought since it was seasonal that it would be fresh. The rum raisin was good at least.

Robert tried to get two flavors, one a gelato and the other ice cream, and they wouldn't let him do it. I suppose there are different prices for gelato and ice cream but you think they could have figured out a way to charge him for that.

They also had a wide selection of fudge and chocolate for sale but after being disappointed by the ice cream, I didn't bother.
