Introduction - Maine

Maine is located in New England in the Northeast Region of the United States. In fact, it is as far northeast as you can get within the United States. It is a state where rocky coastlines and scenic parks abound with Acadia National Park being one of the most visited. One of the reasons why Maine is so unique is because it is the only state to share a border with just one other U.S. state, which is New Hampshire; the rest of the state borders the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Maine and Canada. Written in a kid-friendly format, the following interesting facts and information about Maine lists who is believed to have founded Maine, when Maine became a state, what lakes and rivers are located there and many more fun and interesting facts.
