|MAINE - BANGOR, KATAHDIN, MOOSEHEAD & PENQUIS
A major city easily reached by highway or by coming into
the airport, lakes and rivers, mountains and wilderness.
All of these things are available in this wonderful area.
Historic Bangor is a metropolis which retains the charm
of a classic New England town. All major sports activites,
arts and theatre, nightlife, museums, shopping and great
restaurants abound. The waters and mountains will lure
you here and then lull you into a dreamy serenity.
Us the daytime to travel outside the city limits to Baxter
State Park for canoeing or whitewater rafting or a mountain
climbing expedition or just a good old hike on one of the
46 mountains in the immediate vicinity.
Moosehead Lake is Maine's largest and has eveything a
resort area can offer: crystal clear water, great swimming
and fishing, great old inns and modern resorts, and camping.
Explore to your heart's content in the daylight, then head
in to Bangor for the nightlife.
This region borders on the southern edge of the Allagash
Wilderness and gives you the opportunity to sample the
delights of pure rural Maine in a single day trip without
committing to the long trip or extended stay.
Bangor is also the home of Stephen King and one can find
many of the locations about which he's written in the area
and, who knows, you may even get lucky in a little "King
Spotting" - try the McDonald's near his home or the
bagel place downtown near breakfast time.
If you can't decide how you'd like to spend your vacation,
visit this area anytime of year and experience some of
everything Maine has to offer.
