Beach Vacations in Old Orchard Beach: Seven Miles of Paradise

Does anything provide a more quintessential New England vacation than spending time on the waterfront in a coastal town? With seven miles of beach, an old pier, and plenty of nearby activities, Old Orchard Beach, Maine provides everything you could want while vacationing on the Atlantic, including lodging choices along the beach.

Where to Stay in Old Orchard Beach

When looking to stay in Old Orchard Beach, you’ll see vacation rentals, hotels and resorts lining the beach and Grand Avenue, which runs right behind the beachfront area. This strip is where the vast majority of the town’s accommodations are located, although there are campsites and RV parks further from the ocean. Booking a beachfront property puts you close to the swimming and sunbathing opportunities of the waterfront, in addition to the fishing, boating, and sightseeing tours available.

If you’d prefer something different from a beachfront resort, beach house rentals are also possible in the town. Unlike in a hotel or resort, you’ll be on your own in your beach house, but you’ll have the freedom to make yourself at home while remaining close to the pier and the beach. Refine your search on trivago to find the perfect house to meet your needs.

Maximize Your Beach Days in the Summer
