The distance to northern Maine, how many miles?
How far to Houlton Maine from your end is hard telling without knowing where you are now! How far from here to there, to get you to Maine is going to take how long? Well, Maine is a big state. Daily run into folks on line, over the phone and when away on vacation that ask the age old question about how far to Houlton Maine.
And for many we know here it comes. When they initially share that they have been to Maine and that we must be near that same place.
No, we are not right next door to the Kittery Maine shopping outlets.
The location that is barely into Maine that is only a few whiskers across the big green bridge that connects to New Hampshire on the south end of Vacationland.
Next up, I've been to Bar Harbor, Portland Maine on a cruise ship is shared.
We getting warmer? So Houlton Maine is handy to that location right?
No, Maine is one big state. And the county I live in, Aroostook is the largest of the sixteen. And the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined.
So think Interstate 95 that starts in Houlton Maine, ends up in Key West Florida eh?
The Interstate 95 corridor joins the Atlantic Trans Canada highway that leads to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island to due east. I-95 has a raised, legal speed limit to 75 miles per hour north of Orono Maine. So zipping, clipping north means no traffic. Unless you count deer, moose as traffic to watch out for, avoid hitting on the trip up Interstate 95. Northern Maine is like being at an outdoor natural Disney Land. But no lines at Space Mountain, any of the rides. Cool.
You need the distance to plan your trip because you are just not sure how far we are talking about logging for mileage to Maine. If traveling here, what is the damage for distance, what will the odometer rack up for miles as the wheels on your car or truck, motorcyle go round and round?

How many hours to drive the miles to Maine depends on do you clip right along without lots of stops? Go above, below the speed limit? Got a lead foot? Drive a Yugo or old WW2 jeep? Something sleeker, minky expensive. Delays do happen stuck in traffic out of state before you get to Maine. Slow moving, crawling progress on the road happens in cities to the south, but welcome to Maine.

Folks flying into Maine tell us the attitude changes the closer you get to Vacationland too.
The smaller feeder jets, turbo prop airplanes have friendly people on board going home or visiting Maine.
