From the Portland Stage Theater to Merrill Auditorium to selection of Handel’s Messiah sings at the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, these Christmas shows and events are sure to entertain you and fill you with holiday spirit.

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

This charming version of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol tells the story of the redemption of a human soul. The play follows the ever-powerful story of Scrooge, a lonely miser, who, through the help of spirits and visions from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a loving, generous human being.  A Christmas Carol is the perfect holiday treat for the entire family—and a great way to catch the Christmas spirit at the Portland Stage Company.

This show is holidays treat for grownups that will put you in the Christmas spirit, so leave the little angels at home for a behind-the-scenes peek at an elf gone bad at the Portland Stage Company.

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

The Maine State Ballet again brings the classic holiday story of Clara, the Nutcracker Prince and the Sugar Plum Fairy to Merrill Auditorium. Maine State Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker, with the live musical accompaniment by the Maine State Ballet Orchestra conducted by Karla Kelley, is a perennial favorite of Portland’s holiday season.

Bed and Breakfast Maine

Posted on: August 11th, 2010 by Ray Deleo

Summer is halfway gone and now is the best time to visit Southern Maine’s Premier Beach (Old Orchard Beach) with its seven miles of white sandy beach.

Most people who visit the Atlantic Birches Inn a Southern Maine Bed and Breakfast in Old Orchard beach  spend a few nights here, then travel on to their next destination (to the North or South), for additional day’s.  Old Orchard Beach is about a 90 minute drive North from Boston, and about a three hour drive North to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.  We also have guests that will spend their entire Getaway or vacation here at our Bed and Breakfast Maine.

While in Old Orchard Beach, we suggest visits to several of the local area  must see Maine Lighthouses, all are easy to visit and provide beautiful views, also dining at one of Maine’s Top Ten Lobster Shacks nestled on Maine Coasts. Wolf neck State park, Bradbury Mountain State park, Scarborough Marsh, and the Rachael Carson Wild Life Preserve offer hiking trails and wonderful vistas, There are many art galleries and museums, antique shops, wooden covered bridges, Waterfalls and Swimming Holes, historic homes, wineries, whale watching, boat tours, any many quaint fishing villages, all worth exploring.

If you have more than a few nights, we can suggest itineraries and travel ideas, for each day of activities based in Old Orchard Beach Maine. Nevertheless, we have many guests say when leaving they had so much fun and there was so much to see and do here, that they will just have to come back again do the things they didn’t get a chance to do or see.

Taking a one week getaway or vacation we could suggest activities around the area that would keep you busy the entire time. However, if you want to see more of Maine, we would suggest spending four or five days here in this Old Orchard Beach Lodging, and then another 3 or 4 days either in the northern pats of Maine (Bar Harbor or Acadia National park) or the Western part of the state where their are lakes and mountains (Baxter State Park or Moose Head Lake) and a good chance of seeing moose in their natural habitat.

Now is the time to firm up those last minute Summer and early Fall Vacation plans!  The traditionally busy weekends are either full or filling fast, but some holidays – Labor Day Weekend – September 3 – 6 and Columbus Day Weekend Oct 8 - 10 for instance still have rooms available.  we look forward to making our home feel like your home away from home.
