Tips:

The capital city of Maine is Augusta, while Portland is its most populous city. 

This northeastern state is known for its beautifully changing autumn leaves. 

The former U.S. President George H.W. Bush keeps a family home at Kennebunkport. 

The state is known for its independent spirit.  Political views vary widely, but all views are generally treated with respect.

Large areas of Maine border the country of Canada.

This part of the United States is known as New England for a reason.  Topographically and visually, the Atlantic coast of Maine greatly resembles the Atlantic coast of Great Britain.  Of course, given that the continents of North America and Europe were once connected (separated by continental drift), this makes perfect sense.
