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.
