274 kilometers (plus a border crossing) each way from Fredericton NB to the Eagle's Nest in Brewer Maine for a Lobster Roll! One of the best and biggest I have ever had. This was a number of years ago - prices are way up on lobster this year!

Also did 700 km to Stowe Vermont for a "free" barbeque at an event. In all fairness, I stayed for a couple of days.

Like the US - infinite variety and anything from crowded urban to mountain vistas to coastal splendour. A lot fewer roads and a lot fewer people.
Perhaps nothing comparable to desert heat or southern heat/humidity.

Well, that in itself maybe a great thing less people, maybe less distracted driver's on the road. Only thing is the border crossings to and fro theses days

Border crossings aren't normally that big of a deal although there are still some Covid hangovers. A major pain in the ass right now but most people don't have a problem with it.

You need appropriate documentation and a passport and have to apply ahead of your visit. I am hoping this crap gets dropped soon.
See the following website:

Always wanted to get there but never made it. Heard it was best to bring along someone to share it with also.

We finally made it to Canada

A little over 500 miles. Started in Kokomo, IN to ride somewhere east of Cincy for a hamburger at a fundraiser to help a young man with leukemia. The ride home took us into and across KY, and back north through southern IN.
