During winter and spring months, from November into April each year, the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce shares its downtown location with the National Park Service to jointly provide visitor services at a convenient location for winter visitors. Visitors will be able to talk with a park ranger to learn about Acadia National Park, and chamber staff will provide information about lodging, restaurants, activities, and local services.

The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce information center is located at 2 Cottage Street on the corner of Main Street in Bar Harbor and will be open 8 am to 4 pm daily. It will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, the day before Christmas, Christmas Day, the day after Christmas, and New Year’s Day. The information center is also expected to close early on the days before Thanksgiving and New Year’s.
