Specialty shops and galleries line the streets of the island towns that surround Acadia National Park, tempting you with everything from handcrafted Maine items like tourmaline jewelry, maple syrup, and the works of local artists to must-have imports.
Visit our outdoor outfitters to gear up for hiking in Acadia, kayaking along the coast, or cross-country skiing on the carriage roads. Find an antique, a piece of furniture, or the perfect addition to your kitchen décor. Or take home one-of-a-kind treasures from charming and quirky stores that will surprise and delight you. From the ordinary to the extraordinary, you'll love what you find on Mount Desert Island and in Acadia National Park.
NOTE: Listings here are in a rotating alphabetical sequence. That means each time you visit the page, you'll see the entire list beginning (and ending) with a different listing.

The Naturalist's Notebook is a unique shop and exploratorium that combines nature, art, science and a fun sense of curiosity about the world. It's great for kids age 2 to 102. There are children's programs, mind-stretching exhibits and all sorts of intelligent, beautiful, playful items for sale, including more than 1,000 book titles. Last June The Naturalist's Notebook was named of the 50 Things to Do in Maine This Summer by the Bangor Daily News.
The Notebook is just a short drive from Bar Harbor or Northeast Harbor. It's a great rainy-day (or sunny day) place for families or anyone who's even slightly curious about the world and the universe.
