If you don't already know about one of the most sought-after summer destinations in Maine (Bar Harbor), then let me tell you about it. Now that we're entering deck season (where it would be absolutely criminal to have a meal inside when it's sunny outside), there's tons of places you may not have known about in that area. There's lots of restaurants in the city of Bar Harbor to choose from, but according to Tripadvisor, these are the top 10 you'll want to visit this summer.

1. Thrive Juice Bar & Kitchen
2. Coffee Hound Coffee Co
3. Udderheaven Ice Cream Retreat
4. Rosalie's Pizza
5. Downeast Deli
6. Sunrise Cafe
7. Reel Pizza Cinerama
8.The Happy Clam Shack
9. Milagro Coffee & Espresso
10. Mount Dessert Bakery

I also love how most of these are coffee shops, bakeries, or ice cream parlors, and we're counting them as restaurants (just as they should be). I have been to Thrive juice bar, and it's very refreshing on a hot summer day. I also enjoy a little dive called Finback Alehouse, and a place called Blaze downtown.

Bar Harbor is full of fun activities as well, even water activities. You can rent kayaks and other sporty things, so go have fun this summer!
