I could write a book on the history of the Pier at Old Orchard beach. Originally a Ballroom during the days of Benny Goodman ,Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller it is a market place with Restaurants and a Pub. Pizza was Good. Rustic yes but worth a look..The Old Orchard Beach Historic museum is great for a complete History lesson..

Great small town tradition! Enjoyed chatting with many many locals. Perfect New Year's Eve celebration staying toasty warm on the beach!

It was "ghost town" when we were there, which made it all the better. You could really take in the views without being in the hustle and bustle of tourists.

Its heydey ended decades ago. Sadly, the views have been ruined by overbuilding cheesy shops on both sides. The end has become a bar, which often charges a cover. Better to stick to the beach and Palace Playland area.

A visit to Old Orchard has to include the pier. Its not long, but a great photo op and a rich tradition. Don't forget to get a Coke and a hot dog for .99. And they have bathrooms (I think you have to pay). Love this place.

Fun place but over the decades really run down. In serious need of cosmetic face lift. Eyesore of peeling paints, broken wood structures.

Showing a little age but it has been around for a while and the tides definitely make it why I want to come back! I love being to walk out and take pictures of OOB from the pier. Restaurants mostly closed after Columbus Day one shop still open one the weekend while we were visiting

I've been vacationing in OOB since 1967 and have always loved the pier. But, over the last decade or so the pier just isn't the pier. There use to be food vendors. jewelry vendors, art vendors and all sorts of eclectic things on the pier. The pier now consists of a couple bars and dance club. Not that I'm opposed... More

We were there a week after labour day and apparantly people who vacation afterwards aren't worth the trouble, so most everything was closed. It still is a nice place to walk on though, but it could use some serious updating.
