Old Orchard Beach - Maine

At Old Orchard Beach, Maine, the famous pier (current version built in 1980 to replace the former pier lost in the Blizzard of ’78), continues to attract crowds at one of the oldest tourist spots in the country.

Settlers first came to the area in the 1600s, but as early as the 1830s turned the promising stretch of beach into a coastal resort. For many decades since it has been a landmark, the beach, the pier, and the town, for Canadian visitors as well as New Englanders.
