While Bangor is the biggest city in this area of Maine, people travel this area a great deal from Canada and go to the coast like Bar Harbor which is only about 45 minutes away.

A person who lives in this part of Maine may be from a city nearby, but they all enjoy their state. They love to enjoy the oceans, the parks and other outdoor experiences of Maine.

The people of Maine love their water sports and fishing. People of Maine also are a very resilent people. Mainers know one thing is always certain that winter is coming. The have a more pronounced Boston-like accent. It’s “Lobstah,” Not Lobster.

Maine people are a hearty people. Paul Bunyan is a giant lumberjack in American folklore. His exploits revolve around the tall tales of his superhuman labors. One of the statues of Paul Bunyan is in downtown Bangor, Maine. He exemplifies the ruggedness of the people of Maine.

I will leave you with my last shot of the day. Remember when you travel to do the shots that immediately come to mind and then look for some unique things to toss into your coverage.
