Every year my husband and I visit OOB with my 3 adult children, their friends and family as well as my daughter in-law's aunts, uncles and cousins. We are a huge group. There is so much to do from the amusement park to all the stores that stay open really late downtown. There are also restaurants and a pretty great... More

We loved stopping here along the Maine coast. The amusement park, pier and beach brought back fond memories of our younger years.

Nice break up of trip down from Bar Harbor. Fun atmosphere at coney island type of rides and games. One big turnoff was an attempt to be charged 50 for use of rest room on pier. There are public FREE restrooms about 1000 feet away.

I absolutely enjoyed the entire stay at Old Orchard beach. It reminded me of trips to the beach when i was younger with the pier and the amusement park right on the ocean. It is really a treasure as most places have slowly began to rid themselves of piers and amusement parks. It is like a trip back in time... More

OOB is the best beach in ME if you love sand. It stretches for miles, usually has great waves for boogie boarding or body surfing. Fun searching for sand dollars and shells. The beach is very clean and the town does a great job of grooming and removing washed up seaweed. Our family has been coming to OOB for many... More

This beach is very nice. Long on both side, the pier can get very crowded. Go 10 min. from the pier and you will have less people around you, except on very crowded days. Food is okay and the bars seem very nice, but we did not go in. Even at 10:30-11:00 I always felt safe walking back to the... More

I have gone here every year for the last few years. The environment is great! A lot to do for all age groups and it is clean and orderly. There is fun in the night as well and things do not get out of control. This was an excellent trip.

Perfect place to relax and to have fun in the sand. The water is very cold. Maybe 60?! But the sun is so hot, that you get to soak in!

Great place for families. Lots of fun shops, amusements, food around every corner and cool things to do! Great fireworks off the pier every Thursday night!
