Glad i got the recommendation to check out this beach. It is a long beach,beautiful sand. Only downfall was there was one bathroom on the pier and you had to pay a quarter? The boardwalk was neat, lots of "fair" food choices and small variety of shops.

We have come to OOB every year since 2006 and I could never choose another place to go instead. The beach has soft sand, beautiful water, great summer weather.

It was off season, so that was nice in the sense that there were few people there. I very much enjoyed waking up and going to the beach to watch the sun rise. I use to go here as a kid and loved it then, still a nice area and it appears to be family friendly with lots of small... More

This seaside resort must be very busy in summer, we were pleased we stayed in the area in October, as I'm not sure we'd have liked it as much if it was full to capacity.

Living near Salisbury, MA and Hampton, NH beaches, I never saw the need to go elsewhere. However, now that I have found Old Orchard Beach (OOB) I would always go the extra distance. Beautiful, clean and quiet beaches perfect for families.

We chose this beach to stop during our one day trip to the seaside. We wanted to go swimming and enjoy some time with the family. Everybody was happy: parking was easy, showers included in the parking fee, shops and attractions around, the views of the ocean and the Pier, sitting at the beach, enjoying waves and looking for seashells.

We decided to wonder off the highway as we had some time to kill and stumbled upon the adorable town. Driving in was colorfully tree filled and the houses historical looking. The beach was clean and while it was quite a dreary day, it was still wonderful to walk along. Would definitely stop and stay here some day.
