Old Orchard Beach
As its name suggests, Old Orchard Beach's most popular attraction is its seven mile (11km) stretch of sand, one of the best beaches in Maine. The town is a popular excursion for families in the summer, and ads to the entertainment with a seaside amusement park and weekly fireworks shows. Other popular activities include surfing, canoeing, and clamming. A direct seasonal train link from Boston and Portland make Old Orchard Beach easy to get to, however holiday weekends can be uncomfortably crowded.
