Old Orchard Beach: My Favorite Beach Town in Maine!

Old Orchard Beach, Maine is just 20 minutes south of Portland on the southern coast. It is a great spot for lobster rolls, live music, and my favorite French fries ever (seriously… EVER). The Pier at Old Orchard Beach (sometimes listed as OOB) was first built in 1898 and has been destroyed by multiple fires, storms, and the great blizzard of 1978 and has been rebuilt each time. The pier has restaurants, shops, and of course great live entertainment like R-Rated musical comedian Yo’ Adrian. If you’re with kids, you might prefer the Place Playland amusement park though. All this makes Old Orchard Beach my favorite beach town in Maine. Here are the places shown in the video: Pirates Patio: This is the best place for daytime live music and beers right on the beach Shipwreck Foods: The lobster roll is served with either mayo or butter. I choose butter! Owners are great. Pier Fries: Light crisp with a soft inside. My favorite fries ever. But skip the ketchup and eat them the Maine way…. with salt and white vinegar. The Brunswick: Live music and a great outdoor bar atmosphere in the evenings. The Pier: Several restaurants, shops, and plenty of live entertainment at night such as Yo’ Adrian.
