Downeast + Acadia

Downeast + Acadia Travel Guide

A mainstay of this small community since 1956, it's hard to miss this family-owned lobster shack and seafood distributor, with its large rooftop "Lobsters" sign and row of wood-fired cookers out front.

Ideal for visitors who want to explore Bar Harbor without being confined to a car, this full-service bike shop has a wide variety of recreational and road bikes available for both rent and sale.

If any place typifies Maine’s great rugged outdoors, it’s Acadia, the state’s only national park (and the first crowned east of the Mississippi River).

The hiking route, in Maine’s Acadia National Park, offers two short but technical trails: the 1.6-mile Precipice and the one-mile Beehive, both of which involve steep climbs with the chance to view endangered peregrine falcons.
