Bass Harbor Vacations
From Bass Harbor, Bangor is about 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northwest, and Portland is approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) to the southwest.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So allow time to savour Acadia - North Coast's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Surry, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast, and Prospect Harbor, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest of Bass Harbor are worth a visit too.
Organise your transportation and head out to Ellsworth, a major city for the region, situated 20 miles (32 kilometers) away from Bass Harbor. The city has a number of visitor attractions, including Grand Theatre, L. L. Bean Shopping Outlet and Telephone Museum. Ellsworth Historical Society, Indian Point and Birdsacre Sanctuary are also good spots for investigating before heading back to Bass Harbor.
The best places for tourists to visit when they first arrive in a new place are the spots that best illustrate the culture. Head to Acadia - North Coast's art galleries.
If you're seeking something a little different from seeing the sights, why not indulge in the local watersports? Surfing and sea kayaking are both popular in the area.
The closest major airport, Hancock County - Bar Harbor Airport, is situated in Bar Harbor, 14 miles (23 kilometers) to the north of Bass Harbor, which is handy to remember when booking your trip.
