Cool to see but not much to do

Cool to check out and adds to the cool environment at Old Orchard but there isn't much to do on the pier and the restaurant we ate at on the very end was disappointing.

Like a travel back in time. Cotton candy, sea food and beer. Little boutiques selling nic nacs and trinkets. Fun to look through.

The Pier today is basically a couple of mediocre bars set on a pier. There are a few snack vendors along the way and a couple of interesting displays but it not what we remembered visiting in years gone by. It used to be a lively, open air shopping area so we were disappointed.

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..

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.
