Welcome to Biddeford+Saco, a true Vacationland spot offering miles of white sandy beaches and countless outdoor activities. Here you can enjoy biking, boating, hiking, kayaking, fishing, golfing and other abundant recreational activities.
To start with, we encourage you to visit the beautiful and unique Ferry Beach State Park during your stay. We are also home to a pair of the most fun family amusement and water parks in the Northeast: Funtown Splashtown USA is the largest amusement and water park in the state, and Aquaboggan Water Park has a wave pool of massive proportions. Biddeford+Saco also offer Maine’s only IMAX movie theater, a classic drive-in theater and a bowling alley.
A walk along our streets offers visitors a chance to take in the historical significance of our community, a feeling that’s preserved in the architecture on our main streets, and in the homes and rows of historical brick factory buildings that line the Saco River,which divides our towns. Visit our museum, historical society, and the City Theater—considered one of the most acoustically perfect in all of Maine.
Be sure to include a visit to our specialty shops featuring everything from fine foods to home décor. The Shops at Biddeford Crossing features your favorite larger retail chains, groceries and a wonderful bookstore. When it comes time to eat, our restaurants are second to none and our clean, comfortable and surprisingly affordable accommodations will make your stay all the more pleasant.
Each area beach has its own distinction. Biddeford Pool is a large tidal pool with a two-mile stretch of sandy beach. Fortunes Rocks boasts a wall of rock, then sandy beach and great surf. Kinney Shores and Bayview Beach are welcoming, and Hills Beach has nearly 500 yards of sand. Camp Ellis marks the southern tip of a seven-mile stretch of beaches. Looking for serenity? Try paddling or taking a spectacular cruise on the Saco River or ocean kayaking, boating, or sailing in Saco Bay.
Our area is easily reached via the Maine Turnpike, US Route 1 or the Amtrak Downeaster, and by air into Biddeford Municipal Airport or commercial flights into the Portland Jetport just up the road. We hope you choose to visit us and will return again and again once you see all Biddeford+Saco has to offer.
