Bar Harbor Sunrise

Mount Desert Island, Maine

The largest island off the coast of Maine, Mount Desert Island is home to the famed Acadia National Park and the charming town of Bar Harbor. Book your own cottage and start the morning with a bike ride to the harbor to watch the fishing boats embark at sunrise. Later, go on a whale watching tour, before feasting on lobster rolls at a seaside shack. When night falls, head downtown for an evening filled with jazz music and friendly locals.
