Belfast ME features colonial architecture in historic districts and remains very popular among tourists with its best-known attractions Free Library (founded in 1887), Historical Society and Museum, Perry's Nut House, Front Street Shipyard, City Park (established in 1904).

During the early 1990s, the credit-card giant MBNA established here two facilities. The company was of great importance for the Hutchinson Center (University of Maine). Jobs provided by MBNA (acquired by Bank of America) resulted in a significantly increased population. The Bank consolidated former MBNA operations in the bigger of the two facilities. MBNA's smaller complex was acquired by athenahealth Inc (private US company specializing in network-enabled IT services for healthcare mobile apps).

Shipbuilding was re-established in 1996 via the opening of French & Webb Inc - wooden yacht building and repairs/restoration company. In 2013, Front Street Shipyard opened a boatyard on Belfast Bay. Both companies restored city's shipbuilding waterfront and helped revive its economy.
