Apparently the area was a starting place for several different walking tours too. This guide was for one that involved some part of the history of Bar Harbor – I didn’t catch any details. Later that evening, while walking back from dinner to our room along the sidewalk you can see behind the guide here, we fell in with a group that was doing a ghost tour. Since they were taking up the entire sidewalk we paused with them for a minute to hear bits about a “haunted” grave yard before slipping through the group and on our way.
The Village Green situated in Bar Harbor, Maine is the spot on Main Street where you can purchase a park pass to Arcadia and then take a shuttle bus to the park. You can explore restaurants and shops, take a walking tour or just sit and watch the world go by. It’s a beautiful little square in the middle of all the goings and comings on the nearby streets. It was also pretty good for street photography.
How I wish the weather here was as nice as it was the day I captured this gentleman soaking up the sun on a warm September 2016 day.
These photos were taken with my mobile phone after having a nice dinner and some drinks at the Bar Harbor Beerworks on Main Street. The duck confit tacos I had were amazing (yes I know, not your classic taco but I was enjoying them so much a table next to us asked what I was eating and proceeded to order the same) but the blueberry soda was too too sweet for me. It was like drinking a melted Popsicle.
Now at another drinking establishment a few doors down there was this “scientific” sign which answers a question not sure that was asked 🙂 Be careful out there today if celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Those green drinks can get to you if you aren’t careful.
I can only imagine how beautiful the Acadian night sky is because we always rose very early to beat crowds; by the evening it was dinner and done for the day!
