A Maine vacation in the western mountains
Include a visit to the Bethel area as a part of your holiday tradition! Country Christmas in Bethel (a month-long celebration) is chock-full of activities for all -- including and so much more -- free horsedrawn wagon rides, fairs, teas, open houses, sales, Santa, tree lightings -- and on Dec 20th, the beloved Living Nativity. Skiing and riding can be found at Sunday River Resort and it is a beautiful time to take a drive to see the wide open vistas and perhaps view a moose! Bethel area's lodging, local shops, and restaurants offer something for every taste and budget.
