                              Southwest Harbor has art shops, shopping, restaurants, and various amenities of its own within walking distance. Bike to Wonderland or enchanting Seawall. Take the nearby and free Islander Shuttle in season to Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor, and a wonderful variety of sites. In Bar Harbor you can drive or walk out to Bar Island for hiking and wonderful views, but be sure to be back before the tide turns! A short drive takes you to Bass Head Light, among the most photographed objects on the North American continent.

                              Rent a bicycle and take it with you on the ferry to explore Swan Island, Winter Harbor, Schoodic or the Cranberries. Rent a kayak or go on a guided kayak tour and make Mt. Desert a personal experience, afloat on Frenchman Bay at sunset.
