• Memories Made in Maine
You can touch the clouds, and see everything for miles and miles! If you were to ask me where to visit in Maine, I would automatically say Bar Harbor. A lot of people would say Bar Harbor because it is so beautiful and extravagant, but where I go in Bar Harbor, you can’t even imagine!
Last summer I was hiking a mountain when there was a little path, or what looked like a path. We strolled down it, not knowing where we would end up, or what we would see. Finally, we ended up coming to a wide cliff made up of a cluster of rocks. When I looked down we were up really, really high and all I could see was the water glistening off the rocks. When I looked up, I cOuld almost touch the clouds. Straight across the water on another cliff was a huge mansion! It was all so breathtakingly hard to take in, I could barely believe my eyes!
Bar Harbor has so many places like this, the ones that just blow your mind when you see them. Downtown has many places to browse and shop, and many wonderful restaurants in which to eat. Once you are done with your downtown adventure, there just might be a boat at the dock waiting for you. Yes, you can take a whale or seal watching ride. Schooning all around the exquisite islands, and viewing all the sea
creatures and enthralled people, just makes you feel like you are in a magical land. You won’t ever want to leave!
Why not see it even closer? There are tons of trails to bike or walk that will let you be up close and personal with nature. The trails will go on for miles and miles, with plenty of interesting sights to keep you entertained along the way! There are numerous sections of of Acadia National Park to explore nearby, and there are always amusing activities going on somewhere in the area! Want to rest up for the next day ahead? There are charming hotels, motels, as well as bed and breakfast establishments all around that have lovely rooms and views.
So if you are looking for a relaxing and exciting vacation, Bar Harbor is the place to go. Oh, and one more thing! Don’t forget to take lots of pictures, because you are never going to want to forget this trip!
