Greater Bangor, Maine sits in one of the most beautiful places in the state, right on the shores of the Penobscot River. Surrounded on all sides by local forests and rural farmland, Bangor is overflowing with scenic beauty and nearby parks for residents and visitors alike to enjoy—stroll on the newly revised riverfront or enjoy the fountain and waterfall at Cascade Park.
If you’re into geocaching, Greater Bangor has over 2,000 caches in the area—it’s like a modern treasure hunt! All you have to do is use your mobile phone or GPS. However, there’s nothing wrong with exploring the old fashioned way, too, and with the 680-acre Bangor City Forest right at our doorstep there’s plenty of local flora and fauna to be seen in person. You can even go to the Field Pond Audubon Center or any of the many nearby wildlife sanctuaries for bird-watching.
There’s a lot of land to cover in Greater Bangor, Maine, which is why we at Varney Buick GMC recommend getting yourself a vehicle that can tackle any obstacle you throw at it—on or off the road. Why not take the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 for a spin? You can even bring all your picnicking equipment along for the ride.
