Planning a trip that includes driving from Portland and spending about 3-5 days in Bar Harbor during the late September.
Looking for suggestions on the best location for lodging. Is being in downtown Bar Harbor a major advantage? We'd be doing a wide variety of activities - the major touristy things - and obviously will have a car. And how booked are hotels by that time in September?
My traveling companion and I are vegetarians. I found Eden Vegetarian on the dining link, but would love suggestions for any other places that offer some good vegetarian options.
Also, we were considering taking the CAT ferry just for the day to Nova Scotia. Is that a reasonable idea? Can we do it in one day, and would it be worth it? And maybe most importantly, what are my odds of getting seasick? :)
