Great summer fun

Plenty of things to do for families, couples or just friends. OOB is safe & clean with 7 miles of white sand beaches.

Inexpensive winter getaway. What's to complain about when you're at the ocean? Stayed at the SeaCliff Motel. Oceanfront average room. Great location, jacuzzi tub, perfect spot.

This is truly my favorite beach. It has a variety of nice accommodations and restaurants, as well as good beach food. It is easy to walk to almost everything. It feels very safe, day or night. There is the amusement park, if you need some excitement, but this is really a beach to relax!

We visited Old Orchard Beach Amusement park for the first time after vacationing in Maine for over 25 years! It is definitely an old area and pricey, but it was well worth it. My seven grandchildren who range from 10-19 yrs. absolutely loved it! There were rides that they went on over and over again. It wasn't the busiest day... More

Half a century ago or more, this was a fun vacation spot, a place where the working class could bring the family for a week by the seaside. For the most part, it's a dumpy curiosity now. Canadians can't afford to come anymore, since they can fly to Florida and have an exotic beach holiday for less dough than they'll... More

So my boyfriend and me decided to try this beach out because of all the good things we heard about it. We got there early because in Maine everywhere you go there is always traffic. Had to pay for parking we paid $10 another spot wanted $15 which included bathrooms. Walked to the beach, found a decent spot, and set... More

Clean beach and a great family environment. I have never seen broken glass or dog poo on this beach. I've been coming here for 24 years. The sand is warm and the beach is not rocky. Excellent for skimboarding and waveboarding.

Thank Heather P
