Golfing amongst the mountains in Maine

Deals are popping up all over the help persuade you to take a trip south of the border.

For example, Moosehead Lake is a destination offered on as a scenic getaway.

Northeast Guide Service offers lodging accommodations, rafting, kayaking, and sightseeing tours are organized into one affordable package. The cabins are located on the largest lake in Maine, within the limits of Greenville. Both the motor lodge and campground overlook Moosehead Lake and Big Squaw Mountain. You can swim, fish, walk, hike, or bike from your door step, and all within walking distance of downtown Greenville. All of Northeast Guide Service’s family vacations and lodging packages include your accommodations and either rafting, kayaking, or a Maine moose tour.

You can view all of’s discounted travel packages here.

The fantastic scenery isn’t the only reason Maritimers are flocking south of the border.

Ian Lee, an assistant professor at Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business, said that the smaller market of the Maritimes means less retail competition.  In an interview with the CBC, Lee explained that the competition retailers face in the US is greater than the Canadian retail market.  Coupled with the strong Canadian dollar, that’s a great incentive for shoppers to head south.

Another reason to head south is because you can take advantage of all of the specials that Duty Free Canada stores have to offer.  Check the specials in your region:
