Old Orchard Beach
Old Orchard Beach has been welcoming tourists and families to its beautiful 7-mile stretch of perfect sand beach for over 170 years. Families love all of the family-friendly activities and amusement parks including the veritable beachfront Palace Playland Park. There is nightly entertainment including dancing at the end of the Pier, plus weekly fireworks and concerts, world-class golf, fabulous fishing, whale watch tours, bird-watching and so much more. Old Orchard’s Pier is the center of the recreational offerings. Extending nearly 500 feet over the Atlantic Ocean, the Pier features shops, eateries, games of skill, and nightlife. For additional information about the area’s lodging, dining, attractions, and shopping, visit the Old Orchard Beach Chamber of Commerce web site.
Old Orchard Beach is easier to get to than ever now that Amtrak’s Downeaster services the Old Orchard Beach train station 7 times per day with passengers disembarking just steps from the Beach.
