Best Places to Live in Old Town, Maine

Living in Old Town, ME can be a great experience. It is a small and friendly place with old brick buildings and narrow cobblestone streets. There are plenty of local attractions to explore, like the Old Town Mill which dates back to the late 1800s. The warm summer months bring countless outdoor activities, such as boating, fishing, and swimming in the Penobscot River. Winter brings its own unique sights as well, such as snow-covered hills and trees that stay frosty until April. The pace of life here is slower than most places – it’s not uncommon to spend hours sitting outside on a porch or walking around town just to take in all the scenery. The people here are kind and welcoming – you can find yourself easily making friends just by saying hello on the street or chatting over coffee at one of the many local cafes. All in all, Old Town is an idyllic place that offers small-town charm with big city amenities nearby – it’s perfect for anyone who wants to relax and soak in natural beauty!

What Bert Has To Say About Bangor Metro Area

Bangor is the gateway to the “north country” and a fairly prosperous lumber, paper, and shipping center and the navigable terminus of the Penobscot River in east-central Maine. The areas to the north are wooded wilderness. The rugged shore area is 30 miles to the south, and the “Down East” coast to the northeast is a vast, unpopulated area of classic New England coastline with fishing and other recreational sites. Acadia National Park is on an island 40 miles to the south. Old Town, on a river island 10 miles north, is home to the University of Maine and the Old Town Canoe Company, a business befitting to the area.
