The village offers unique shopping including galleries, clothing, gifts, jewelry, nautical items, antiques, a farmer's market and a grocery store. There is also a library with computer access, and numerous boating and ferry excursions to the surrounding islands. Whale watching, day sails and a wonderful range of restaurants. The island offers live theater, music, antiquing and a broad range of outdoor diversions and sports and the incredible experience of a spectacular national park. Take a day trip to Nova Scotia on the high speed ferry for a special memory. While Bar Harbor offers activities galore, elegant Northeast Harbor will give you peaceful nights lulled to sleep by the occasional sound of a nearby harbor bell. If you don't feel like driving, hop on one of the buses that serve the island in the summer months. Or warm up the fireplace and curl up with a book. The house is full of them. Fall foliage is a special season and the park with the cliffs and the view is dazzling.
