Logo   From Maine to New Brunswick, Canada
Make your Maine adventure a Two-Nation Vacation by venturing into neighboring New Brunswick, Canada. With a passport or passport card, it's easy...and fun.


Maine, the largest New England state by area, has lots to see and do, and it even offers the opportunity to visit another country: Canada.

Imagine a "foreign" country where English is the common language, you can speak French if you want to, lots of daily life is quite easy and familiar, but also somewhat different—even a bit exotic. That's Canada, and it is literally a stone's throw (or enjoyable ferry voyage) from several Maine towns.

Bring your passport and you can enjoy a Two-Nation Vacation!

Bring Your Passport!

To visit Canada and to return to the USA, you must prove your identity and citizenship to officials of both countries. This is best done with a passport or passport card. In some cases, another form of identification may be acceptable. More...

Maine borders the Canadian province of New Brunswick, providing easy access to:

Campobello Island

Just across the Franklin D Roosevelt Memorial Bridge from Lubec, Maine, this verdant island is where Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt spent many enjoyable summers. Their large "summer cottage," and the cottages of some neighbors, are now protected and preserved by the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, a joint US-Canadian reserve.

The island is also home to New Brunswick's Herring Cove Provincial Park, two small settlements, several places to stay and dine, and lots of room for hiking, biking bird-watching and nature lore. More...

St Andrews by-the-Sea NB

This Canadian seaside resort, only a half-hour drive from Calais, Maine, is as delightful today as it was in its 19th-century heyday. Surrounded by the sea, with plenty of fine places to stay and dine, it can be restful or active—or both, as you wish. More...
