Does anyone have a preference between the Maine/New Brunswick border crossing at Calais International and Milltown/St. Stephen?
Calais international gets you right on to the highway. Think it is quicker.
Calais is the way to go, fast and easy.
We cross at Calais going to Newfy but come home at the St. Crois/Vanceboro crossing. It puts us further up 95 but is a scenic ride home. Of course we are way up in Northern NH so the distance isn't great. Calais is the best for those who travel far.
I am a Houlton guy myself
It doesn't make much difference, the time ends up being the same either way.

Houlton is quicker for me. Seems like the secondary roads to Calais can be slow at times.
I have never seen much difference, time-wise but I like the scenery better at Calais.
I used Houlton when traveling up to NB for my moose hunt last year and had no problems at all.

Houlton for me too.
Houlton for me also
A few years ago we had a nasty experience with an anti-hunting Canadian customs officer at their then new border crossing. We no longer use that crossing.
