It's Maine's Queen City of the East! A true gem in our woodland crown of amazingness, and according to various sources, supposedly Maine's most dangerous city.

According to a study by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bangor ranks among the nation's safest cities.

Scratching your head yet?

We are too. If Maine's most dangerous city is one of America's safest, that says a LOT about this country of ours, and our home state of Maine.

It's pretty well known that Portland, Lewiston, and specifically Bangor have been facing a range of drug-related issues over the last several years. Bangor has even been called the "Bath Salts Capital of America."

But underneath the two conflicting superlatives, Bangor is one of Maine's coolest cities. (not by temperature, though... that title probably belongs to Fort Kent!)
