Great schools, colleges, universities and hospitals. There are restaurants to eat at. The safety of the community is excellent. Wonderful parks and walking paths to enjoy. Great scenic views, and plenty of churches. The public school system seems to be very good. High paying jobs are scarce. There are several factors in the surrounding communities that pay well.
Presque Isle is a quaint town in Northern Maine where you can truly appreciate the beauty of the state. There are mountains in every direction that you look, wonderful hiking areas, and wildlife all around.
