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.
Review Bangor
Great library, bars, restaurants and quaint downtown area! It is walkable with a variety of places to go with friends or family.
I've worked in Bangor for about 6 years now, its a great area with numerous job opportunities. If I wasn't leaving for school, I can see myself staying here for some time!
