I live in Bangor and am active in the business community. Acadianlion did a great job describing Waterville and Bangor. Many years ago, after my Dad retired from the military we moved to Maine. As a teenager, I thought it was the worst thing a Dad could do; buy a 65 acre farm house in the middle of nowhere. When I need my "city fix", we go to Boston for a show, shopping, etc. It takes me 3.5 to 4 hours. In the past few years, I find I'm going to Boston less, as the University of Maine Center for the Arts, more restaurants, can provide many enjoyable evenings without the traffic. It was the best thing my Dad ever did for me. The quality of life in Maine concerning education, low crime, clean environment, many pristine lakes, and incredible beauty makes putting up with the taxes and politics tolerable.

Dear Kargo,

I live in Hampden a community just south of Bangor with an excellent school system and many activities for children and families. There will be a new high school built here in the next three years and the system is rate among the top 5 in the area. It is about a 45-50 minute communte to Waterville. It offers convenient access to I-95 and is adjacent to Bangor for much shopping and services. Options of new homes in nice subdivisions or older homes with alot of character. Good values and resale, with many town services and stable tax rate. Here is the town website [url=http://www.hampdenmaine.com]Town of Hampden -- Welcome to Our Community Website[/url]

What type of services and activities are you seeking for you and your family?

thank you for all the input so far. since i'll be working in waterville and my husband will be working in bangor, we decided to look at newport as a good place for both of us to commute to and from. any thoughts on newport? i guess we can always drive to bangor to eat out, watch movies, etc. i'll be researching newport, just want to make sure there are some groceries, stores, basic shopping there?
