About Old Orchard Beach
Old Orchard Beach in Maine has turned into quite the tourist Mecca from its humble beginnings in 1653. In 1837 tourists could pay $1.50 for a nights stay at a local farm. Sure beats today?s prices, doesn?t it? When the railroad service began it was just the beginning to becoming a major resort that it is today. One of the biggest draws to the Old Orchard Beach is the seven mile stretch of sandy beaches. Many families vacation there with children, because there are many activities that they can all attend together, such as the Palace Playland. The Palace Playland comes complete with a huge arcade, Ferris wheel, carousel and Kiddieland. If you think you have what it takes you can hop on the Galaxi Coaster too. The kids will be thrilled to see the fireworks display every Thursday night. Head on over to the Saltwater Grille where you can enjoy casual dining from the porch with views of the Portland Harbor. Joe?s Boathouse is just a stones throw away with more casual dining next to the water. For a big treat go indulge yourself at The Clambake Restaurant. The Old Orchard Beach Inn is a fine historic place to stay. Offering complimentary breakfast where you can enjoy some of the local fare. Meals are served with fresh vegetables from their own garden. Fresh baked sweet treats are served in the afternoons.
