Christmas is just over two weeks away, and with the recent snow we have gotten here in Central Maine, many are finally beginning to get into the spirit of the holiday season.

The website, Only In Your State has come up with 10 Winter Attractions For The Family In Maine that are pure magic during Christmastime.

From Bath to Bar Harbor, Augusta to Gardner, all along the mid-coast and down to York county some places go all out in their quest to make for a special, holiday feeling and some really cool things happening too, pun intended!

1. Take a winter trip on a Christmas train.

2. Enjoy a winter sleigh ride.

3. Have a special cup of hot cocoa.

4. Stroll one of Maine's small town centers.

5. Spend a night at a cozy Maine inn.

The time is now, these are just a few of the great ideas, and there's nothing like seeing the real thing. So time to get your family and friends together, and taking a drive to one of the great towns in Maine that are serving some holiday cheer!
