Welcome to Biddeford and Saco, offering miles of sandy beaches and countless outdoor activities. Visitors can enjoy biking, boating, hiking, kayaking, fishing, golfing, and abundant cultural activities.
To start with, we encourage you to visit the beautiful and unique Ferry Beach State Park during your stay. We are home to some of the best family entertainment in the Northeast. Funtown Splashtown USA is the largest amusement and water park in the state. Biddeford+Saco also offer Maine’s only IMAX movie theater and a classic drive-in theater.
A walk along our streets will give visitors a sense of our community’s history. A feeling preserved in the architecture on our main streets, and in the homes and rows of historical brick factory buildings that line the Saco River separating our tow towns. Visit our museums, historical society, and the City Theater—considered one of the most acoustically perfect in all of Maine.
Be sure to visit our many specialty shops featuring everything from fine foods to home décor. The Shops at Biddeford Crossing and Saco Valley Shopping Center feature your favorite larger retail chains, groceries, and an excellent bookstore.
Spend the day on one of our many welcoming and family-friendly beaches.
Biddeford’s beaches include Biddeford Pool—a large tidal pool with a two-mile stretch of sandy beach. Fortunes Rocks boasts a wall of rock then the sandy beach and great surf, while Hills Beach has nearly 500 yards of sand. In Saco, Kinney Shores and Bay View are welcoming and family-friendly beaches. Camp Ellis and Ferry Beach mark the southern tip of a seven-mile stretch of beaches. Try paddling or taking a spectacular cruise on the Saco River or ocean kayaking, boating, or sailing in Saco Bay.
The area can be easily reached via the Maine Turnpike, US Route 1 or the Amtrak Downeaster.
