Old Orchard Beach has been attracting tourists for over a century with its long stretch of sandy beach, seaside amusement park, and an 18-hole golf course. In the parlors of the old hotel--the only one that survived a 1907 fire--you can still experience some of that old flair. Walk down the pier lined with shops, food stalls, and a nightclub at its end, or spend some time bird- or whale-watching. At night, put on your dancing shoes and sway to the rhythms of lively music. Put Old Orchard Beach and other Old Orchard Beach attractions into our Old Orchard Beach day trip planning tool , and watch your holiday take shape.
