Nestled between Kennebunkport and Old Orchard Beach on the Maine coast, are Biddeford and Saco – both great choices to find deals on lodging as opposed to the more high end luxury hotels one typically finds in Kennebunkport or Ogunquit. With Route 1 passing through Biddeford and Saco, vacationers can find the familiarity of chain restaurants, movie theaters and department stores.
Biddeford and Saco boast downtowns and Main Streets lined with brick walkways, shops and cafes, and restored Mills with views of the Saco River – classic Americana. The Lincoln is a proposed hotel with a future Riverwalk pedestrian zone in downtown Biddeford at the old Lincoln Mill.
For fun things to do in Biddeford, you can tour the coast of Biddeford Pool, visit Wood Island Lighthouse, boat the Saco River by tube, SUP, canoe or kayak. The Biddeford Ice Arena offers a great indoor place to skate year round, with a bar area for adults to watch the skating.
The Shops at Biddeford Crossing provide great shopping at major department stores, popular chain restaurants plus local big stores like Market Basket and Target. Biddeford is also home to unique Maine discount stores like Mardens and Reny’s – less like LL Bean and more like surplus and salvage providing an adventure for bargain hunters.
Saco provides fun for the kids with theme parks including Fun Town Splash Town USA and Aquaboggan as well as the beautiful Ferry Beach State Park. Saco adds a mix of historic homes and new restaurants and businesses established in the old Brick Mills of Saco Island, just minutes from Old Orchard Beach.
