Old Orchard Beach

The seven-plus miles of incomparable sands at Old Orchard Beach offer the best of swimming and surfing; you can jog , walk or exercise along them, or simply lay back and get a tan.

Generations of family vacationers from all over have returned to Old Orchard Beach summer after summer since 1853, when the old Grande Trunk Railroad first connected Montreal to this area. Not surprisingly, French is still freely spoken at this favorite spot for Canadians.

Built in 1980, the 475-foot pier is among its many attractions. These include: tennis, golf and Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf, deep-sea fishing and amusement parks and water slides. Fireworks dazzle over the beach every Thursday summer evening and there are free weekly concerts next to the pier. There is a boardwalk to explore, and a host of restaurants in the town to entice you. After dark, a busy nightlife and fine restaurant dining continue the fun. In short, there is something to fill every minute when you are not just relaxing.
