Anyone up for a road trip to Bar Harbor?

The moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. The time has come when we can ditch those pesky masks (with certain exceptions), breathe some fresh air, and live our lives again. Granted, it will be awkward at first, because we are all accustomed to always having one handy, but with Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, and the unofficial kick off to summer on the way, things are looking up! With that in mind, we are all free to travel and enjoy all that the beautiful state of Maine has to offer.

No summer in Maine is complete without a visit to Bar Harbor. If you wanna do it "dirt cheap" we have a video that will give you plenty of options on how to get the most bang for your buck.

Follow the escapades of Bangor-born filmmaker Chas Bruns as he travels the world in search of the cheapest tours, food, hotels, hostels and transportation. If you're living on a budget, Chas can show you how to travel for pennies on the dollar. In this video, Chas hits Bar Harbor, Bangor, Dedham, Trenton, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Somesville, Tremont, Mt Desert Island and Acadia National Park. And pays a visit to the legendary Timber Tina, from Timber Tina's Great Maine Lumberjack Show, in Trenton!

If money is no option, there are plenty of adventures to be had. Maybe a National Park Sea Kayak Tour, play a round at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, hit the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company, head to the Ocean Trail, or explore around Mount Desert Island. Bar Harbor is my favorite place in Maine for a reason, there is just so much to do and see.

There so many helpful videos that can make your traveling experience satisfying! Have a great summer, and get out and explore!
