We have spent a lot of time at the Village Green. it is very pretty, quite large, lots of seating, well-designed. We were there for July 4th and Labor Day -- the band & singers were great! A lot to do right around the Village Green as well.

Rode bikes and discovered the small Green area to rest and enjoy the scenery. Quiet day with shoppers about and took in the happy atmosphere.

The village green is a nice place to spend a little time. We had to wait there for quite some time waiting for buses. The fountain is beautiful and so are the flower beds. It's on a slight slope and is surrounded by a lot of establishments. I wouldn't really call it an attraction.

A really nice area in the middle of the shopping/dining streets of the town. It's full of all sorts of great historical markers telling about the town. If you enjoy history, you'll enjoy this.

Spent the morning walking around Bar Harbor, starting with the beautiful park on the hill opposite the harbour. (Free wi-fi) A typical ( upmarket ) fishing village. Stephen King, the author, lives nearby in Bangor. Am sure he pops into the shops on a regular basis. Didn't run into him unfortunately. Reminded me a little of Carmel in California. A... More

Very quaint and great stores! Sorry that we went late in the day because we did a boat ride earlier. Would have enjoyed spending more time here.

Important town park, the hub of activity here on Main Street. Nice spot to meet fellow tourists. Tourist bus stops close by.

It's small but cute and a nice little Place to take a small break or enjoy a cup of coffee. The clock which lines the park is pretty and they have some historic plaques describing some things in the park.

We picked up all of the Islander Excursion busses right here. Lots of flowers, benches to use while we were waiting. Got to meet other travelers and their pets.
