Old Orchard Beach has been a sought-after vacation destination for more than 250 years.
In addition to our beloved seven-mile stretch of glistening beach, visitors are still delighted and thrilled by Old Orchard’s oceanfront amusement park. First opened in the early 1900s, the park is the only one of its kind in all of New England. Some of the same attractions that lured visitors to OOB long ago continue to attract eager new travelers today.
Visitors enjoy spending time at the pier and dining at restaurants with “the best” seafood dinners in Maine. The area also offers easy access to in-town shopping, refreshment stands, and candy shops. Many come for the weekly firework displays, concerts in Memorial Park and at the Pavilion. Take a relaxing ride on the local trolley to top off the day.
There are so many reasons to pack your bags, make your lodging or camping reservations, and plug our lively seacoast town into your GPS. Surfing, biking the Eastern Trail, golf, deep-sea fishing, the virtually endless list of annual events should all be included in your travel plans.
For many who visit it is all about the beach—all seven miles of it.
Some consider Old Orchard Beach to be the ideal summertime destination to relax and unwind. Many come for the white sand and the ocean surf, brightly colored umbrellas, and sandcastles that line the shore. Some simply revel in the chance to capture our sunrises and sunsets. With the iconic 500-foot pier in the center of it all, what more could vacationers ask from a beachfront destination?
