Under $100 / North America

Bangor, Maine, is nestled along the Penobscot River. There are plenty of cultural attractions to visit and outdoor spaces to explore for less than $100 a day.

 

Start your day at Dysart’s for breakfast. With two locations in Maine, the truck stop restaurant specializes in comfort food. Choose from omelets, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, waffles and other traditional breakfast dishes. Entrées range about $5–15. Breakfast is served all day.

 

Located in the north part of the city, visit Bangor City Forest. The park boasts more than nine miles of trails for hiking, biking and snowshoeing. Open year-round, admission is free.

 

A visit to Maine isn’t complete without sampling fresh lobster. Open daily, McLaughlin Seafood, Inc. serves up popular seafood dishes from crab cakes and fried calamari to lobster rolls and seafood chowder. Choose from daily specials starting at $8.95 or seafood specialties from the regular menu ranging $5.95–25.95.

 

After lunch, visit a few Bangor landmarks. Check out the Paul Bunyan statue located near the river. Stop by Stephen King’s home. The private Victorian mansion is not open to the public, but it’s visible from the street. The fence is adorned with wrought-iron spiders and bats. Explore the many shops and boutiques in the downtown area.

 

Grab dinner and drinks at Nocturnem Draft Haus. The German-inspired bar and restaurant offers a rotating menu of classic German dishes like Bavarian soft pretzels and unique items like meatloaf sandwiches. Weekly specials are available Monday–Wednesday. Regular-priced entrées start at $13. Select a local beer from the seasonal tap list, with prices starting at $6.
