Bangor, the Queen City of Maine, is located on the western bank of the mighty Penobscot River. The proximity of the river made Bangor the “lumber capital of the world” for much of the 19th century.

Bangor is the third-largest city in the state and the retail, cultural, and service center for central, eastern, and northern Maine, as well as Atlantic Canada.

As the Gateway to more of Maine, Bangor is an easy drive to four of Maine’s most spectacular regions: Aroostook County, Down East & Acadia, The Maine Highlands, and Maine’s Mid-Coast. These regions offer great outdoor adventure, rich cultural experiences, culinary delights, and scenic beauty. They are all yours to see when you use Bangor as your home base.

For regional information, be sure to visit the Greater Bangor Convention & Visitors Bureau.
