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!
On November 12th, at 6am in downtown Bar Harbor, there are going to be some pretty excited shoppers! Every year, Bar Harbor folks gear up for the Early Bird Pajama Sale, where shoppers don their favorite (warm) pajamas, throw on their hats and mittens and run through town, looking for the best deals on all that Bar Harbor shopping has to offer. An early breakfast at Jordan’s on Cottage Street will fuel you up for 3 hours of incredible deals on house wares at Window Panes, trendy scarves and clothing at The Village Emporium, great prices at clothing and gear at the Acadia Shops, and fantastic prices on designer olive oils at Fiore Olive Oils and Vinegars. So many deals, you’ll need to bring a friend just to help you carry all your bags!
The busy summer season has ended, there’s a crisp feel in the air, and many wonder just what it is about Bar Harbor that makes a fall visit so special? This town may seem to have come to a halt compared to the months of July and August but for those fall visitors who spend time in Bar Harbor now get to enjoy an entirely different vibe from the summer rush and see what this quaint town has to offer.
The fall is a great time to visit Bar Harbor, Maine. Even with the long days of summer a faint memory, this quaint little town still has a lot to offer its leaf peeping guests. And did you know that Bar Harbor has some of the best places for holiday shopping?
