- Old Orchard Beach
Maine’s Premier Beach
Remember the summer when you were a child, and your family went on
vacation? Remember how you dreamed about what you wanted to do to make
your vacation perfect? First, there had to be things to do-lots of things,
like miniature golf, games, amusements, and rides. Then, there had to be
food - the type of food that you wanted, like pizza, fried dough, cotton
candy, caramel popcorn. And there had to be a beach - a big, broad stretch
of sand where you could build castles, run with a kite, or just sit and
soak in the sun’s warmth.
Do you remember those thoughts and dreams? That vacation still exists at
Old Orchard Beach and is waiting for your children and the child still
inside of you.
It’s almost impossible not to have fun at Old Orchard Beach. The low surf
makes this a favorite spot for swimming, sunbathing, and making new
friends. When the kids get hungry they can explore the boardwalk for
pizza, french fries, hot dogs and cheeseburgers, or you can choose from
the many family-style restaurants around town. Try your luck at the video
games, jump on a ride, treat yourself to an ice cream or a frosty cool
soda. Thrills, chills and frills-take your pick or do it all.
Catering to tourists and families is a way of life in Old Orchard Beach.
The beach, the arcades and amusement rides, nightly entertainment, golf,
fishing, auto races and harness racing are just a few favorite activities
in the Old Orchard Beach area. Old Orchard’s Pier is the center of the
recreational offerings. Extending nearly 500 feet over the Atlantic Ocean,
the Pier features shops, eateries, and games of skill.
During the summer, there are special events, festivals, fairs, concerts,
street dances, and fireworks to entertain all.
Old Orchard Beach is easy to reach by plane, train or automobile. The
Downeaster - Amtrak train service stops in Old Orchard Beach seasonally
(Memorial Day – Labor Day) and Interstate Highways are just minutes from
the beach. By air, we are serviced by the Portland Jetport, 13 miles
north. Boston’s Logan and Manchester (NH) International Airports are less
than 2 hours away. Local bus service is directed to the center of town
where you can easily walk to the Kebek 3 Motel from.
You’ll also find that Old Orchard Beach is ideally situated if your
interests go beyond a lazy day at the beach. The Route One corridor just
west of town is a beehive of activity with two water parks, an amusement
park, restaurants and shops. Twelve miles to our north is the popular
Maine Mall with a vast array of stores, shops and restaurants. The
historic Old Port, with its cobblestone streets adjacent to Portland
Harbor, is a dining, entertainment and boutique shopping delight.
Old Orchard Beach is surrounded by the idyllic seaside communities of
Ocean Park, Pine Point and Camp Ellis. The cities of Biddeford, Saco and
Scarborough are our immediate neighbors, offering a variety of services
and shopping. New England’s largest salt marsh is off Route 9 in
neighboring Scarborough with guided walks and canoe tours.
Less than 30 minutes north is the bustling factory outlet town of
Freeport, home of the famous L.L. Bean store, open 24 hours a day, 365
days a year. Further north Maine’s rocky coast beckons with such popular
destinations as Boothbay, Camden, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
