    Town is just a walk away. The town is a tourist town full of fun shops and interesting people. Don't be scared away, when at school it doesn't FEEL like a big tourist town. Even in the town square its calm and quiet, the town is beautiful and there is a free bus system that can take you all around the island. You are living on an island by the way. With nature trails, bike roads and mountains to climb.

    You're living in Bar Harbor, Maine so there's an entire national park, Acadia, right behind you. There's things to do in town but people mostly just socialize with their peers.

    My personal favorite is to go for a hike in Acadia National Park. It is minutes from campus and can make a fantastic afternoon. Also if you are athletic, you can play COA's only official sport, Quidditch.

    Explore Acadia! There's always stuff to do outside. The town of Bar Harbor is very cute and has a number of neat shops, as well. In the winter it's a bit of a ghost town, but it's still easy to find something to occupy your interest.
