Old Orchard Beach Recreation


Old Orchard Beach has been welcoming people to its beautiful seven-mile stretch of sandy beach for more than 170 years. This beach has lifeguards. Old Orchard’s Pier—which extends nearly 500 feet out over the Atlantic Ocean—is the center of the recreational offerings. On the pier, you can shop, eat, play games of skill, enjoy the nightlife, go dancing, watch fireworks, listen to concerts, fish, or go on a whale watching or birdwatching tour. You and your kids can also enjoy the Beachfront Palace Playland Park, which is the only beachfront amusement park in New England. One way you can reach the beach is aboard the Amtrak Downeaster, which stops just steps away from the beach.
