Myst Restaurant – Old Orchard Beach, ME

Work & Travel

Things to Do in Old Orchard Beach First, there’s the seven mile beach. When the tide is out and the sun is shining, the sand goes on forever. People nestle in for a nap, play football, toss a frisbee, and venture into the surf. There seems to be room for everyone. Then, there’s the Old Orchard Beach Pier. First built in 1898, the Pier once marched more than 1,800 feet out into the bay. It hosted restaurants, shops, and even a casino where Frank Sinatra once crooned. Storms eventually broke down the old Pier; the newer one is slightly shorter. But it, too, includes places to eat, drink and shop, all of them above the waves. Back on shore, check out Palace Playland, the Old Orchard Beach amusement park. Here, you can scare yourself on the big-kid rides, play for tickets on the arcade games or watch the waves below as you sit atop the Ferris wheel. More than anything, OOB is a local town. Stroll the Old Orchard Beach boardwalk, enjoy small, local shops, and stop by Old Orchard Beach restaurants, local bars, and local hotels and motels. Pick up a sandwich, shop for a t-shirt, sip a beer or grab some cotton candy. People have been strolling these same streets and enjoying these places for generations. Ready for some quiet time? Visit Ocean Park. This woodsy, summer retreat was founded in 1881 in a section of OOB for religious camp meetings and self-improvement lectures. It’s still owned by an association and hosts ‘The Temple,’ the only octagonal church in Maine
