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

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.

Glad i got the recommendation to check out this beach. It is a long beach,beautiful sand. Only downfall was there was one bathroom on the pier and you had to pay a quarter? The boardwalk was neat, lots of "fair" food choices and small variety of shops.
