Sorry and no offense....even though I love Camden, I love Bar Harbor more....and Bar Harbor's number needed a boost (currently at 54 with Camden at 454).

Just returned from a trip to Bar Harbor and Camden. Although I thoroughly enjoy Bar Harbor, I find Camden more interesting. While we were in Bar Harbor, we went back several times to Lunts Lobster Restaurant in Trenton; food was not only reasonable, but delicious and the people were great. Another favorite is Sprague's in Wiscasset, simple and very affordable (1 lb. clams, corn, coleslaw, roll, 1.5 lobster for $21.99). Eat on the picnic tables or take out.

I was glad to see Belfast on the list but shocked that Eastport wasn't there. There's something about the tranquility, the ocean, and the people were amazing. I still get a kick out of them leaving their cars running while they run into the stores. Don't get me started on the Moose Island Bakery.

I had the very best clam chowder ever in bar harbor. but it was many years ago (1986 or 87) and I can't remember the name of the place. It was right down by the water on the pier I think.

Also had fabulous and HUGE blueberry muffin for breakfast.

Just MHO but I think that Bar Harbor has lost much of it's quaint charm when they tore down the entire block on the water where the "Quarter Deck" was located and built a 4 story hotel.. I still enjoy walking around the village and seeing the cruise ship of the day.

God, I was horrified when I saw that, had no idea that was built, so when we turned the corner, I was aghast!!
