Why is Bar Harbor "touristy"

Jump to last reply

I often see Bar Harbor descibed as touristy, the implication being that that is a bad thing. Yet other full-of-tourist towns such as Camden are not. Could somebody explain the difference?

A walkable town with lots of places to stay and lots of restaurants would seem to be a good thing for a traveler! I have nothing against places like Southwest harbor, but it doesn't seem nearly as convenient , unless you are having most meals at the place you are staying.

Bar Harbor pretty much shuts down in the evening, so It can't be because it's noisy at night!
