Rental Information: Welcome to Old Orchard Beach
Remember the summer when you were a child and your family left for a vacation? Remember how you dreamed about what you wanted to do to make your vacation perfect? First, there had to be things to do, lots of things, and then there had to be food, like pizza, fried dough, hamburgers, cotton candy, & popcorn, etc. And then there had to be a beach, a big broad stretch of sand where you could build castles, a place to run & throw footballs, a place to lay in the sun and feel its warmth. Remember those thoughts and dreams? That vacation still exists in Old Orchard Beach and is waiting for your children and the child still inside of you. It's almost impossible *not* to have fun at Old Orchard. Beside all the family-style restaurants downtown, you can try your luck at video games, jump on a ride, treat yourself to an ice cream or a cold soda. Thrills, chills, and frills, take your pick.
