    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. Fall, meanwhile, brings warm, copper-hued colors to bask in, while winter may just be the most exciting season of all. When the snow falls and transforms the place into a winter wonderland, you can explore the wider region on skis or snowshoes, or even go on a snowmobile jaunt.

    Wet and wild in Bangor

    One landmark you can’t miss in Bangor is the mighty, coursing Penobscot River. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can really make the most of it by going on an adrenaline-pumping rafting trip. It’s not just about navigating the waters – you can also take in the rugged scenery as you go. Back on dry land, you can explore Bangor City Forest, whose dense woods are home to all kinds of critters, from beavers and rabbits to Canada geese and bears. The many miles of trails will also take you by all kinds of flora, from the blue-pod lupine to the carnivorous pitcher plant.
