History: Maine was admitted to the union as the 23rd state on March 15, 1820. The state was named by French colonists after the French province of Mayne. The state got its nickname, the Pine Tree State, because of the extensive pine forests that cover the state. Maine is the leading producer of lobsters and blueberries in the nation.
Geography: Maine, located in the far northeast corner of the US, is the largest of all the New England states. Maine is bordered on the north by the Canadian provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick and on the south and west by New Hampshire and to the east of Maine lies the Atlantic Ocean.
Flight: Bangor International Airport (BGR), Portland International Jetport (PWM), and Presque Isle – Northern Maine Reg. Airport (PQI) are the main airports in Maine.
Drive: If you live in any of the neighboring states you could drive to Maine but please know Maine is huge, you will have to drive a lot within Maine, to get to the main attractions.
