A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Fort Kent) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Fort Kent. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Fort KentOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Fort Kent.

<7>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Fort Kent), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
