Destination guide

A tranquil taste of New England in Bangor

Sprawling on the banks of the Penobscot River, garlanded by dense forests and sweeping fields, Bangor is a picture-postcard New England locale. Main Street is overlooked by a big, jolly statue of Paul Bunyan, and the legendary lumberjack is a fitting symbol of this lumber town. The best way to make the most of a trip here is to live like a local, and that’s what Bangor vacation rentals allow you to do. Spacious family homes, along with chic properties along the river, will put you close to all the landmarks and attractions.

Things to do

Art and discovery in Bangor

Kids will love Maine Discovery Museum, a children’s museum where they can pet turtles and geckos, become doctors for the day, and dig up replica dinosaur bones in a sand pit. It’ll inspire and entertain in equal measure. Meanwhile, more highbrow exhibits await visitors at the University of Maine Museum of Art. There are masterpieces by great Pop Artist painters like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, as well as examples of works by giants such as Picasso and Diego Rivera.


Natural serenity in Bangor

Downtown Bangor is a charming place to wander – these historic, stately streets are dotted with family-run places to eat and shop. If greenery is what you’re after, Cascade Park lies close to Bangor vacation rentals. It’s a genteel space with tinkling fountains, picnic benches, and rippling water features that have given the park its name. It’s a fine place to read a book, go for a wander, or even have a wedding. Birders should pay a visit to the Field Pond Audubon Center, where you can spot red-winged blackbirds and bluebirds, among other lively creatures. And if you’re a fan of horror maestro Stephen King, you can go on special guided tours of the sites around Bangor that inspired many of his famous works.


All-year escapes to Bangor

When should you book your Bangor vacation rental? There is genuinely no wrong time. Come in spring and summer, and you’ll relish the sun-dappled rural landscape and the blossoming flowers.
