Bangor Travel Guide


Bangor's close proximity to the University of Maine's main campus at Orono provides it with an attractive artistic and cultural edge. Attractions such as the Penobscot Theater Company and the University of Maine Museum of Art have contributed much to the area's growing reputation as a haven for iconic artists who have come to call central Maine home.

At the same time, Bangor is ideally situated near Acadia National Park and Baxter State Park (home of famous Mt. Katahdin) for hiking and other prime outdoor recreation. Hike Mt. Katahdin's towering peaks during the day, while enjoying theater or a live music performance in the evening. Add the city's rich history to the mix and you have a prime location for a vacation.
