Maine during Christmas is a wonderful winter wonderland full of things to explore. For one thing, it’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, equipped with various ways to hit the slopes such as skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing! Here in Maine, snow doesn’t stop the fun. During the holidays, many cities in Maine host winter festivals that feature parades, costumes, and even Santa coming into town on a lobster vessel! Come see how Maine celebrates Christmas and let GetAway Vacations be the source of your holiday home away from home.

Why Come to Maine This Christmas

Maine takes the Christmas festivities to the next level! Kennebunkport, ME was voted by HGTV as the #2 Christmas Town in America, so you know they’re doing something right! Kennebunkport hosts its annual Christmas Prelude which usually takes place the first couple of weeks of December. During this time, visitors can witness Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with some lobster friends arrive in town on a lobster boat! There are also tree-lighting ceremonies, candlelight caroling, festivals, and even a fireworks display! Kennebunkport is a beautiful town, boasting many opportunities for visitors to take photos with the backdrop of holiday lights and snow. When it comes to food, enjoy holiday feasting and lobster bakes at a variety of local restaurants.

Another town that is known for its Christmas spirit is Camden, ME. This seaside village holds a “Christmas by the Sea” festival once winter rolls around. Like he does in Kennebunkport, Santa comes to town in a lobster boat with his fellow elf companion and they visit families around the town. You can have a photo-op with Santa at the Camden Public Library when he comes to read a Christmas story! While in Camden, enjoy taking part in the holiday sales and eating delicious local fare at the restaurants. Be a spectator at the annual Christmas parade which goes from Camden to Harbor Park and watch as the parade ends with the community tree lighting. With sleigh rides and caroling in abundance, you are sure to get into the holiday spirit in Camden.
