Love the Beach, the Amusement Park, the nights activities such as various restaurants and clubs. Shopping was great. So much to see and do and not a million people either. It felt safe for the teens to go free. A all around great time. Wound go again.

We were at OOB for only a couple of days in September and were fortunate to have picture perfect weather. Since it was off-season, there were very few people there. The beach was extremely clean, with no seaweed washed up like on some beaches. If you like walking the beach, you'll love this one!

We have visited OOB many times over the years. It is a great beach to walk on any time of year. It is also a good beach for bodysurfing (a favorite past time) and is family friendly. There is easy access from most hotels and motels and several parking areas that provide access as well as changing rooms. Love OOB.

Very long and clean beach, ideal for a walk or run. Also great for just relaxing and building sandcastles!

If you don't like a like a crowd this is the perfect time for you. Even though we did not have the perfect weather still had a great time. Everything was walking distance. The beach was very clean.

Used to bring my children here years ago, and it was a family oriented town. but they have torn down some of the arcades. and replaced them with condo's and bar rooms, People are not allowed to walk around with alcohol in their possession but that doesn't stop the drunks from wandering from bar to bar and running their mouths...

September means few people on the beach. The water is ok for a short swimming. Old Orchard is not the place for good restaurants. It is almost junk food. However, we found some place for sea food at good price.

Nice and quiet. Water starting to get cold, but beautiful weather. The crowds are gone! Close to Portland, Freeport.
