The City of Caribou, Maine, is noted for being the most Northeastern City in the United States. As such, Caribou is a recreational tourist destination during the year for winter sports, summer beauty, fall leafpeeping, and benefits from its close proximity to Maine’s northern wilderness for hunting, fishing, and other outdoor sports. Caribou’s industrial and farming businesses are an essential part of the region’s economic heritage.
The City has been working to promote economic and tourism growth, encouraging events and businesses to establish themselves in Caribou. In addition, the City works to create engaging community events which are a regional draw and bring residents closer together locally, regionally, and internationally, as the Canadian boarder is within minutes from Caribou.
