Old Orchard Beach
OOB’s oceanfront amusement park is the only of its kind in all of New England.
Maine’s Premier beach resort
Old Orchard Beach beckons you to relax and unwind. A popular travel destination for more than 250 years, some of the same attractions that brought visitors to OOB long ago continue to attract eager new travelers to our vibrant beach community today.
What more could visitors ask for in a beachfront vacation than its wide variety of dining, amusements, shopping, and outdoor fun.
Pier Fries and Fireworks
Visitors also enjoy spending time at the pier, dining at restaurants boasting “the best” Maine seafood dinners, easy access to in-town shopping, and food stands, including the famous Pier French Fries and candy shops. Many come for the weekly fireworks display, concerts at the OOB Baseball Park and the Seaside Pavilion, or to take a relaxing ride on one of our seasonal trolleys. Enjoy a concert at Old Orchard Beach Ballpark or participate in the virtually endless list of annual local events.
The Fun Never Stops
There are a plethora of other fantastic reasons to pack your bags, make your lodging or camping reservations, and plug our lively seacoast town into your GPS or smartphone as a vacation destination.
Experience biking the Eastern Trail, surfing along long flat beaches, a round of golf, and deep-sea fishing. In addition to our beloved seven-mile stretch of glistening beach, visitors are still delighted by Old Orchard Beach’s Palace Playland, which first opened in the early 1900s and is the only one of its kind in all of New England.
For many who make the trip here, it is all about our seven miles of beach. Visitors revel in the white sand and tumbling ocean surf, brightly colored umbrellas, sandcastles that line the shore, or simply the opportunity to take in our views at sunrise and sunset. The iconic Old Orchard Beach Pier is the center of it all.
