Presque Isle during its Light Parade.

Attractions: Aroostook Centre Mall
Who: Canadians from New Brunswick

What: Presque Isle, Maine, might not look like it's near much on a map, and that's because it isn't. But the tiny town near the New Brunswick border is home to the region's main shopping complex, the Aroostook Centre Mall. While it offers a modest store directory, Aroostook still hits all the necessities (JCPenney, Kmart, Lowe's and Sears) and even has its own Tim Hortons to make visiting Canucks feel at home.
