5 Best and Fun Things To Do In Penobscot Maine

Maine has all the charm of a New England city, but it’s also home to many charming small towns and villages—one of which is the seaside town of Penobscot Bay. Just half an hour north of Bangor and an hour south of Portland, this little slice of heaven is bursting with natural beauty and rich in history.

Penobscot Country has long been recognized for its abundant mineral deposits and lush forests. Perhaps it’s because the state is so small with so much gorgeous nature, or perhaps it’s because the people are just so friendly, but there is something about this state that draws visitors back again and again. It might be something as simple as a cup of coffee or a hike along an apple orchard trail. It might also be the chance to see adorable baby puffins waddling along the coast just before wintertime.

If you love walking through quaint local stores while exploring different cultures and taking in the beauty of the surrounding nature, then you’ll love visiting our charming little towns here in Maine. Discover the best things to do in Penobscot Country in our list below.
