Bangor Airport Guide

Bangor’s attractions nearly all centre on cultural activities and a visit to the local tourist information office in the city will furnish you with details of concerts, theatre performances and more that are on during your stay.
There are a number of cultural festivals in the city including the huge American Folk Music Festival in August. Other attractions include the view from the Thomas Hill Standpipe over the city and much of Maine’s landscape. If you’re travelling with kids they’ll love the Maine Discovery Museum which recently converted from being a children’s museum. Now instead of toys and games, there are interactive science experiments and more.

Bangor Info

Bangor is a small city in Maine but has a big cultural influence because of its university and cultural scene. It was founded in the mid-18th century and developed, taking advantage of the plentiful forests in Maine. The city grew to become the main financier of lumber companies and a hub for its exportation south to the big east coast cities and on to the Caribbean. Today, after a period of decline, Bangor is reawakening thanks to a boom in the cultural scene.

  • Norumbega, a mythical Viking city is thought to be under the site of modern day Bangor
  • Due to conflict between the French and British, Bangor was one of the last areas to join New England
