Bar Harbor is on Route 3, about 10 miles southeast of the causeway leading onto Mount Desert Island. For detailed driving information, and information on flying in, please click here.


The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce ( tel. 800/345-4617) stockpiles a huge arsenal of information about local attractions, both at its offices on 2 Cottage Street (downtown, 2 blocks from the pier) and in a welcome center on Route 3 in Trenton, just before the causeway onto the island. Write, call, or e-mail in advance for a directory of area lodging and attractions. The chamber’s website is full of information and helpful links, too.
