I love how beautiful Liberty Maine and how most of it is on the lake. Liberty has many small businesses and places to go to adventure the outdoors. However, East Liberty sometimes has a higher cigarette, alcohol, and drug scene. Many teenagers participate in these habits.

Liberty is a small, quiet Maine town in Waldo County, with friendly people and where neighbors help each other out. Liberty is a very outdoor recreational type of town where we enjoy hunting, fishing and boating. Liberty is the place to retire to or get away from a busy city.
Liberty is a small, close knit community with people who are always offering to help each other out. Everyone knows everyone, and tries to keep the town in the best shape it can be. The people and the atmosphere is very nice. I like the small town feeling that my town has. I have loved living here, and I would consider living there when I'm older or close to the town.
