Planning a Trip
Bar Harbor is on Route 3, about 10 miles southeast of the causeway leading onto Mount Desert Island.
The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 158, Bar Harbor, ME 04609 (tel. 207/288-5103; www.barharborinfo.com), stockpiles a huge arsenal of information about local attractions, both at its offices on 1 West St. (at the pier) and in a welcome center on Route 3 in Trenton, just before the bridge onto the island. Write, call, or e-mail in advance for a directory of area lodging and attractions. The chamber's website is chock-full of information and helpful links.
