Summer fun in Maine

Old Orchard Beach is a coastal town just south of Portland. People from New England and Canada make up the bulk of visitors here. You can walk the 7 mile beach, play at the boardwalk arcades, eat tons of fried beach foods, or go to the small amusement park. Families seem to love this place. I know I had a great time with mine.

Rides galore

ok, it's no Disneyland, but that's a good thing. This place reminds me of the fares that would come to town up North when I was a kid. Sure, the rides are dangerous and I have a gash on my arm as I write this, but this was reliving our childhoods for me and my Brother and Sister.


my whole family got up at 5:30 and walked down to the beach to watch the sun rise.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great place to relax.
  • Cons:people who drop their food..then get mad at YOU
