Watch What Summer at Old Orchard Beach, Maine Looked Like in the 1960’s
Summer is certainly flying by! Have you and your family made your annual pilgrimage to OOB yet? Old Orchard Beach has a population of about 9000 that swells to over 75,000 during the summer. And if you didn't get your OOB arcade-beach-bars-shopping-eating-pier fries-pizza-swimming-sunbathing-bumper car-palace-playland vibe on last summer because of the pandemic, then let's go in 2021!
We found this old 8mm film of a family trip to OOB from the 1960s. You had The Pier, the Jack and Jill slide, Noah's Ark, the Coal Mine, and many other fun attractions. Some parts of Old Orchard Beach are pretty different than today, but much feels the same!
