We used to go on vacation to Bar Harbor Maine around Labor Day.  We would fly from Atlanta up to Boston, take a rental car for the drive up.  It was always exciting. We would usually stay just outside of town towards Acadia National Park. Acadia Park has camping and cottages and just wonderful walking trails.  Cadillac Mountain is there and you can see forever from the top.  Take Ocean Drive along Maine rugged coastline that runs along that area and you can see the “blow holes” shoots water up in the sky when it hits the rocks with a mighty force at Thunder Hole.  In Bar Harbor you have a quaint town with shops and restaurants and more cottage type homes, and even a park with a band stand.  My wife always said she would like to live in Maine at least for some period of time when we retire.

Booth Bay Harbor is another nice small town in Maine further South on the coast.  We were booked to visit on Sept 12th, 2001.  The planes got ground and Delta had to give our money back.  We never had made that trip, but it is on our list to check out.

Some of the most popular small towns in Maine are Bar Harbor, Booth Bay Harbor, Camden, Castine, Ellsworth, Falmouth, Hampden, Newry, Old Orchard Beach, York County ME. Of coarse the bigger cites Portland, Bangor, Portsmouth. Maine’s coast is beautiful Kittery to Eastport, Western Maine has lots of small towns. Southern Maine is doing well.

A visit to check out Maine’s small towns would be a wonderful vacation.  Vacations sometiime turn in to a “let’s move here” decision. Of coarse Northern Maine has long
Winters so many people have seasonal homes for the Summer and head to other places like Florida for the Summer.
