Bangor is a small town, what I like about that is, knowing where everything is and short drive times. What I do not like about Bangor is, there really isn't much to do here for fun, especially for kids. I take my kids to the park, the town swimming pool, or the arcade, that is really it for options. I wish someone would open more fun places for children. I also wish we had more of a variety of restaurants and shopping places here. It is a close knit place to live though, making it easy to get acquainted with your neighbors . I do not have to worry about my children being out after hours either, because the crime rate is very low. I do wish that the cost of rental units were cheaper also. All in all, it really isn't a bad place to live.
Bangor is a great place to live and work. The people here are friendly, and there is always lots to do! The BAT bus connects Bangor, Brewer, Orono, Old Town and Hampden and it is very easy and convienent to get around.
Great library, bars, restaurants and quaint downtown area! It is walkable with a variety of places to go with friends or family.
