Clam shacks and shops on Old Orchard Beach Pier lead to a nightclub perched over the water. The original pier was an iconic structure that stretched 540 m (1,770 ft). Today the entertainment pier extends 150 m (500 ft) over the Atlantic Ocean. The wooden structures along the pier serve funnel cakes, hot dogs, popcorn, and hamburgers to visitors strolling the boardwalk.

  • Walked the pier at night and again the next day with our 7 year old. It was a great place to go. We did not engage in “carnival” activities as we were there to enjoy the ocean and sun but a great plac...  more »
  • A walk from 1898. Without interest (restaurants and tourists too) but since the beach photo is vital!

  • My visit to the Pier this past summer was a major disappointment. It seems to offer less and less in decent options and quality of many of the shops is on the decline.  more »

  • Pier during the day is on point!!! Wear your bathing suit with a cover up! Fantastic corona Ritas and buckets of this and that. People watch oodles of kids playing in the water with the waves rolling in. It reminds me of vacation to south Carolina. Almost nostalgic. The view is nice. It's cool to watch the beach looking in. Went with a big group. Lots of seating although plan for it to be busy. My only complaint is that the live music a bit too loud so just position yourself farther from the speakers
  • Very fun place to hang out! My family loved making sand castles and boogie boarding next to the pier and then going onto the pier for lunch and ice cream. My wife and I came back in the evening and sat at an open air table at the very end of the pier to have a couple of drinks and watch the fireworks show. TOTALLY AWESOME DAY!
  • I love oob I'd love to live here in the winter ;).
  • Weird place in the off season. Everything was closed and it had a strong "scooby doo" vibe
  • Sad that it wasn't open in September when we visited. Pretty beach though. I imagine it would be a great place in the summer.
