Nice Drive.

A nice afternoon drive with fantastic ocean views. Bring your camera and take time to pull over along the way.

We like to explore an area by car - since I don't walk well. We loved Harborside Drive so much, we drove it three times. Great views of the fijord and we absolutely loved looking at the large houses on the water side. It would be a great place for a picnic. We took the Princess cruise and saw many... More

When on MDI there is lots to do....take time to explore some of the side roads. Harbourside Drive is one of those experiences. You will see views that are amazing and along the route there are a few places to pull over....we snagged one and had lunch over looking the water.....great side trip. All ages will the experience.

Harbourside Drive has some spectacular vistas and is worth detouring to if you're on MDI. We took Harbor Drive to the town marina and had a great picnic lunch while watching all the boat and ferry traffic. It's a fun way to see another part of the island.

Quite place, close to trails, ocean and lakes. Located in small town. Nice place to escape Bar Harbor crowd.

Beautiful way to spend a few hours enjoying some beautiful Maine scenery. Spend som time at the harbor watching the boats come and go and people watching is always fun, too.

I assume This is Sargent drive, the drive along the southern and western coast of northeast harbor. Worth the time, but drive slow as there are so many beautiful homes to see.
