Greetings from Waves Oceanfront Resort in Old Orchard Beach, Maine!
March 28, 2010
Welcome to Old Orchard Beach, Maine! This blog will be updated periodically with events, general happenings, and things to see and do in Southern Maine through the eyes of the staff here at Waves Oceanfront Resort.
Since this is our first entry, we will take the time to tell you a little bit about ourselves. We are as close as you can get to Maineâ€™s best beach! Waves is located directly on Old Orchard Beach, a white sand beach seven miles long and 700 yards wide. We are the largest hotel on the beach, with 167 rooms and 5 cottages, with private balconies, an outdoor swimming pool, fitness room, and an on property cafÃ©, candy shop, and store. Just a short walk from your room you will be able to stroll the beach, and relax in the sand.
For some in town fun and excitement we are an easy walk to the famous Old Orchard Pier, a fixture on the beach since 1898. The pier is the centerpiece for family fun with an amusement park for the kids, shops, food, fun and entertainment. More adventure is only a short drive away to several amusement parks, deep sea fishing, golf courses, museums, and many other Maine Coast attractions.
Stay tuned for future blogs about local attractions, lighthouses, and good eats in the area. If you have suggestions on future post please let us know and we will do our best to shed some light on the topic.
