Small community feel with big prospects. I love living so central to 3 cities: Bangor, Ellsworth and Belfast.

Aside from a handful of union jobs there doednt seem to be much opportunity for an enriching career in any field beyond medical work. There are definitely jobs; McDonald, Hannaford, gas staions. Nothing that could change the world or pay rent on a single wage.

Convenient and easy to find. Some of the most beautiful views and serene stillness is within 20 miles of home. Generally, well groomed trails with easy to see markers. Most of the time there is a large map showing a topical view with points of interest and trail lengths.
