Old Orchard Beach, Maine

The Beach

Maine’s Premier Family Beach Resort
The PierRemember summer vacations when you were a kid? Remember how you dreamed of what a perfect summer getaway would be? You dreamed of a long wide sandy beach. You hoped there would be lots of fun things to do by the beach. You wanted to play mini-golf, ride the carousel at the seaside amusement park, get wet on a waterslide and play in the arcade. When you dreamed of the perfect vacation food, you craved hot fresh pizza, handcut French fries, ice cream, fried dough, and cotton candy. Summer vacations could only be perfect if there was that beautiful beach with an amusement park and seaside resort town right next to it.

Palace PlaylandThat perfect vacation exists The Gull in Old Orchard Beach, so bring the kids and the kid inside of you. Old Orchard Beach offers 7 miles of soft sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean, the best beach in Maine, and the Gull offers the perfect location to enjoy it all.

Old Orchard Beach is a thriving seaside resort town, with the last remaining oceanfront amusement park in New England – Palace Playland, just steps from the Gull.

Come “sea” for yourself, but hopefully you can stay for a week since there is so much to see and do in Old Orchard Beach a few days simply does not do it justice.

Obviously the top attraction is the beach. The gradual surf makes the seven mile beach ideal for swimming and sunbathing. The soft white sand makes the best sand castles, in fact Old Orchard Beach hosts annual sandcastle building events – for professionals and amateur families. Beach walks, beach volleyball and Frisbee are all great ways to enjoy your day at the beach.

At the middle of the long sandy strand of beach and just a half mile from The Gull is the Pier and the town center. Walk to the Pier and explore the boardwalk. Here you will find every treat imaginable from French fries, fried clams, pizza, burgers, and Greek gyros. There are several family-style restaurants around town and Maine lobster rolls are on most menus.

Just steps from The Gull you will also find arcades with video games, wild rides, games of chance, and a classic beachfront carousel and Ferris wheel. After your amusement park thrills, treat yourself to some chills with an ice cream or a frosty cool drink. Thrills, chills and frills-take your pick or do it all. Did we mention shopping? Old Orchard Beach has boutique shops, candy stores, clothing toy and tee shirt stores galore.

Catering to tourists is what we do at The Gull. Comfortable and affordable accommodations, the beach, arcades and amusement rides, nightly entertainment, golf, fishing, auto races and harness racing are just some of what we offer.

And in the center of it all… Old Orchard’s Pier with all the amusing offerings
