What To Do In Bar Harbor On The 4th Of July

Fourth of July Fireworks

Well, here it is, our first blog entry! We have been trying to decide what we wanted to write about for our first blog entry, but it seems like there are so many things going on right now, so it’s hard to narrow our subject down to just one! Finally we’ve decided our first blog will be about the 4th of July in Bar Harbor. We know that this area is very popular during the summer, but the celebrations on the 4th seem to start it all off, and do so with a BANG!

Here is what you can find in Bar Harbor on Independence Day:

I love the weather in this town! And this summer has been no exception- we’ve had more sun than rain, more warm air than cool, and even though it’s humid a lot of the time, it’s nothing like the depressing humidity found in the South this time of year! The warm summer Bar Harbor weather is what the locals look forward to most in Bar Harbor, and this summer has not disappointed!

Are you planning on a late summer vacation to Bar Harbor, and feel as though the stress of the summer is just starting to catch up with you? Have you been looking forward to this vacation for weeks, and now just need to find a way to de-stress? We suggest you schedule an in-room massage immediately to get you ready for a relaxing and wonderful Bar Harbor Maine vacation at the Quimby House Inn!

There is nothing I enjoy more every year than the first snowfall of winter. Bar Harbor is so quiet during the first storm, especially in the evening, like the snow has muted the world. Looking out from out front windows you see a car go by every once in awhile, sloshing through the snow. It gives me that holiday feeling, like what you had the day before Christmas when you were a little kid. So much excitement and anxiety about the arrival of Christmas and the warm fuzzy feelings of the holiday spirit.

The Fire Of 1947

Prior to 1947 if you were traveling to Bar Harbor you would likely have driven down Millionaires’ Row on your way into town. A stunning view of grand estates that were seasonal homes and summer cottages along Frenchman Bay were a common sight. Mount Desert Island, home to Bar Harbor, was known as the summer retreat for the wealthy. Historic hotels along with the estates kept the town of Bar Harbor and surrounding towns on Mount Desert Island a place for the rich and famous. But on October 17, 1947 everything changed.
