It is impossible not to have the time of your life in Old Orchard Beach. The gentle surf is perfect for swimming, running and playing in the waves. 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 arcade, 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 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 and nearby Victorian Square feature New England’s only oceanfront amusement park, games of skill, shops, eateries and nightlife.
During the summer, there are almost daily special events, festivals, fairs, concerts, street dances, and fireworks to entertain all. Oh and did we mention, the omnipresent beach always there, always luring you into its peace and tranquility.
Old Orchard Beach is easy to reach. Interstate Highways bring you right to our campground resort. By air, we are serviced by the Portland International Jetport, 13 miles north. Boston’s Logan and Manchester (NH) International Airports are less than 2 hours away each.
You’ll also find that Old Orchard Beach is ideally situated to go beyond a lazy day at the beach. The Route One corridor just west of us is a beehive of activity with water parks, an amusement park, restaurants and The Shops at Biddeford Crossing. Twelve miles to our north is the Maine Mall, Maine’s largest 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 Portland and Kennebunkport are two nearby popular tourist towns, offering a variety of harbor activities and more shopping. New England’s largest salt marsh is in neighboring Scarborough with guided nature walks and canoe tours.
Less than 30 minutes north is the bustling factory outlet town of Freeport, home of the world-famous L.L. Bean store, open 24/7, 365 days a year. And there is a giant Cabela’s World’s Foremost Outfitter Store in adjacent Scarborough.
Further north, Maine’s rocky coast beckons with such popular destinations as Two-Lights State Park and Portland Headlight in historic Fort Williams.
