Nestled on the eastern coastline of Maine adjacent to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor has a mystique all its own. It is home to excellent New England seafood; a collection of distinctive lighthouses; Millionaire's Row, opulent summer estates owned by America's elite in the 19th century; brilliant fall foliage; and Mount Cadillac, the first spot in the U.S. where the sunrise can be seen each morning.
