Bar Harbor

The local Bar Harbor community atmosphere is shaped by the four seasons: in summer downtown booms with tourists and in winter things quiet down. During the spring and fall, students can enjoy the local sights and services without the crowds. Many local businesses such as bookstores, natural food stores, second-hand shops, and outdoor gear suppliers stay open throughout the winter to serve the year-round community. Two movie houses (one that serves pizza and has couches in lieu of the usual theatre seating), a yoga studio, stores with dvd rentals, restaurants galore, bike shops, and a public library will likely be stops at some point during your years at COA.
