    Belfast Reviews

    2 reviews
    Belfast is a small, cute, art town on the coast of Maine. I honestly wouldn't want to see anything changed. Every once in awhile big businesses try and come in and change everything, but the towns people fight back. We like our little tourist town just the way it is. There are great shops, delicious food, and it's not too far from a big city. In the winter time many people might say that there is nothing to do, but that's just small town life and I don't mind it. It's quite in the winter and busy in the summer. That's a happy medium for us who live there year round.

    I lived in or near Belfast for about 14 years. It is a lovely town, with a lot of positive things going on most all the time. It has a lot to offer folks of all ages.
