Bangor Reviews

1 review
This area is more for retired folks. There is a lot of beautiful scenery, and it is a quiet atmosphere. The Adirondack mountains are only a short drive away. It lacks a lot of extracurricular opportunities that children would have in other areas. Even many people with college degrees cannot find jobs in this area. People relocate to other states/areas because factories close or jobs move elsewhere.

However... it is not all bad. When something devastating happens, this community rallies together like none other.
