The "Bangor Daily" Newspaper can be purchased at most local stores and has lots of info on current activities. The weekend edition sometimes has inserts with event calenders as well.
I was a "Sunriser" (newscarrier) as a kid, until I got myself into trouble collecting from my customers 3 weeks out. I was taking the cash and going "over town" to buy candy bars for me and all my buddies. Oops.
I used to be quite popular.
Apologies to my former customers.
Anyway... *munching on Clark bar*
-"The Weekly" is a seperate publication that come out ...er..weekly, and has "things-to-do" posted in it as well. Look for it.
Insider Tip: Pick up a copy of "Uncle Henrys'" magazine at most any convenience store to see what's being sold in the area. Never know...you might find that rare and elusive Carol Channing Lunchbox to round out your collection in the Antiques section.

In the spring, bring a windbreaker, sweat shirt, medium-weight pants, sneakers, short-sleeved shirts. In late March through mid-April, you should also bring boots just in case it snows, which it will time to time. In the summer, bring shorts, a light jacket, and other loose, comfortable, and casual clothing. Sunscreen is a must, as is insect repellant -- especially if you do anything near the woods. Sand Beach at Acadia National Park is only 50 miles away. The water is too cold for much wading or swimming, so bring sunscreen, a bathing suit, towel, sun umbrella, and anything else you prefer taking to the beach. For hiking, sunscreen and insect repellant are musts. Bring water, sunglasses, binoculars, a camera. Also, light shoes. You will be able to get by with a good pair of sneakers on most trails. A DeLorme gazetteer is a must when exploring Maine. You can find one at any Shaw's or Shop 'n Save supermarket, plus Irving service station. It will cost about $15, but the information is invaluable.
Library worth a stop
The Bangor Public Library is worth a stop. Several years ago a lovely new addition and remodeling was done. Stephen and Tabitha King donated a substantial amount along with many others in the community to make this possible. There is usually a wonderful art display to see that changes regularly. The whole lower level is for children. Worth a look if you love to read or just love old buildings
Day Tripping in Maine
"A Day in Bangor"
If you haven't figured it out by now I tend to move around alot when I travel. So, a two hour drive from Sebego to Bangor was not an unusual adventure for me.
Why go to Bangor? Well...it was a major city in Maine and I like cities. Bangor is a small city. It's easy to navigate by foot. The home of author Stephen King was not far from the main shopping district. There are nice places to eat and shop in Bangor. Nice skyline too.
"First trip to Georgia coastal area"
This was something I had been wanting to do for several years and was not disappointed with the area. Savannah is just beautiful and must be even more so in the springtime when all is in bloom. Spanish moss hanging from the large trees adds a certain charm to the area.
A side trip to Tybee Island, a climb up the lighthouse, and a dolphin criuse on the peaceful Bull River were certainly worth the time.
We traveled down to Jekyll Island and St. Simons Island. Lovely private homes on Sea Island..
