The Polar Express is a must-do for the family! You can enjoy hot chocolate and cookies as you journey to the “North Pole.” You'll ride about a mile and a half along Casco Bay on the Eastern Promenade, according to the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company & Museum.

Plus, Santa is on board for the kids. You can take pictures with good ol' Saint Nick and the train conductor as well, while you sing Christmas carols. The train ride lasts about 45 minutes. That's going on now through Saturday, December 23rd at various times at Ocean Gateway in Portland, Maine.
