Located near the Atlantic coast, and alongside the Penobscot River, Bangor was discovered by Samuel de Champlain over 400 years ago and has become a destination for regional and world travelers.
In what was known as “The Lumber Capital of the World,” guests of our Bangor accommodations who stroll downtown will encounter folkloric lumberjack Paul Bunyan as a towering statue, watching over his hometown. And for fans of living history, there’s Leonard's Mills, a reconstructed logging community.
For travelers ready to launch themselves into the wilderness, adventure is close to your Bangor hotel––don’t miss Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and nearby Mount Katahdin. A Gulf of Maine excursion also offers whale and puffin spotting! After a busy day outdoors in Bangor, our hotel’s guests can visit the West Market Square Historic District for shopping, or dine on some legendary Maine lobster.
For a cultural jaunt, you can enjoy outdoor concerts, a Penobscot Theatre show or the University of Maine Museum of Art; comedy, music, and more can be found at the Collins Center for the Arts. Whether you’re searching for Stephen King’s home (King is a resident of Bangor), antiques, or simply a good time, Bangor offers an enchanting experience.
