Grand Times for Budget-Conscious

    Aquaterra Adventures - If you want to try ocean kayaking but your budget is a bit tight, try the Harbor Sea Kayak Tour. Reasonably priced, two-hours of your time, and a tour to remember. The sunset / full-moon harbor sea kayak tour is the absolute best!

    Mainely Meat BBQs - Catch their buffet at Atlantic Brewery on Saturdays. The sampler plate will feed two people. It includes sausage, pulled-pork, chicken and ribs plus a good portion of homemade potato salad and coleslaw. Add an Old Soaker Rootbeer, and I guarantee you will be full and satisfied.

    Morning Glory Bakery This local favorite makes their own bagels, muffins and pies. Try a cup of Thunderbolt coffee with a piece of peach raspberry pie and your day will be off and running. As long as you're not vacationing with your mother, a slice of pie makes a great breakfast.

    Cafe This Way - Opens early. Excellent portions and service. A creative menu. Be sure to try the homemade corned beef hash.

    - Explore Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor on a narrated 1 or 2.5 hour tour. This company has been in business for years, has knowledgeable drivers/tour guides who will entertain and inform you.

    Island Explorer - The island explorer buses are convenient and free. One can explore most of MDI and never have to utilize your own vehicle. The Park Loop Road (during part of the season), Jordan Pond, Brown Mountain and more are all available to you with this great bus service.

    Poor Boys Gourmet Restaurant - The Early Bird dinners for under $10 will likely fit your budget. Get there about 4:30pm to beat the rush, enjoy your meal, then you still have plenty of time to walk the Shore Path, shop or people watch from a sidewalk bench. Save room for desert!
