Maine

Maine is the most northeastern state in the United States. Its neighbors to the north are the Canadian provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. To the south lie the state of New Hampshire and the Atlantic Ocean. Maine's shoreline is rocky with interesting harbors and inlets and hundreds of small islands off shore.

Much of the state is covered in spruce, fir, and pine. Cities are few and none exceed 100,000 in population. The seaport city of Portland, located on Casco Bay, is the largest with around 75,000 residents. Augusta, the capital city has less than 25,000. The sea, stocked with lobsters, herring and other seafood, provides a living for some families; hydro power plants and their related industries, provide a living for others.

Visitors play an important role in Maine's economy, particularly those who love the outdoors. Fishing, hunting, hiking and swimming are just a few of the activities they enjoy.

Although winters in Maine are cold and summers are relatively short, the state is considered a summer getaway, most notably for prominent citizens such as President George Bush.
