Pier BeachIn fact, many Mainers believe the best seasons are fall, winter, and spring. In the fall, the leaves begin their annual transformation into a kaleidoscope of colors that people from all over the world come to delighting. The mix of brilliant reds, vibrant oranges, yellows, purples and every color in the rainbow is simply one of the most magnificent displays in the world.
In the spring the budding leaves and warming sand will inspire you and signal that mother nature is reawakening. Spring and fall can offer summer like days with off season savings and all the joys of an Old Orchard Beach vacation including just lounging on the beach.
Spring, fall, and winter you will find some of the country's finest shopping, from the world famous LL. Bean and Freeport Outlets or the Kittery Factory Outlets, to the quaintness of the Old Port in Portland or the convenience of the Maine Mall, all less than an hour from Old Orchard Beach. Dickenson CandyEnjoy spectacular seaside drives, antiquing, historic seaside villages, lighthouse hunting, and fabulous meals. Discover the fun of interesting and varied museums. Outdoor adventures abound from cross country skiing to hayrides and sleigh rides.
A romantic getaway to the Maine coast is perfect in all seasons. Enjoy a bottle of wine in a spectacular restaurant or soak those troubles away in one of the numerous area hot tubs. And if you're looking for Maine's most popular dish you will not be disappointed, as lobster is served year-round.
Piazza Rock - A few miles north of Small's Falls and a good way to combine a hike and picnic. This enormous flat boulder appears to be balanced in midair on a trail which is a good but not too difficult hike along the Appalachian Trail. You can climb onto the rock, which has large trees growing on it. Children should be closely supervised here. Nearby caves can provide exploration opportunities.
Small's Falls - On Route 4, north of Madrid. This is a popular roadside picnic area at the junction of two streams with a waterfall area. Swimming is a frequent activity seen below the falls and there are short, easy trails to the top of the area.
Supplement a twoday outing in this area with some time at Mt. Blue State Park, on the shores of Webb Lake. The site has a swimming beach, picnic tables, bathhouses, fireplaces, campsites, as well as boat rentals and launching areas.
For more experienced hikers, the Loop Trail will give you magnificent views of the Great Ledges from which to see Tumbledown Cliffs. Near here you can pickup Chimney Trail, a difficult and hazardous route to the western summit.
Tumbledown Mountain - This threepeaked mountain north of Weld holds appeal for a wide variety of hikers. The Brook Trail is easy and only 1.5 miles roundtrip. It is the quickest way to Tumbledown Pond, a true alpine lake with excellent fishing. From Brook Trail you can take Parker Trail to the east and west peaks in an easy climb.
White Mountain National Forest - This is an 886,000 acre area in Maine and New Hampshire which has awe-inspiring gorges, waterfalls, extensive hiking trails and camping facilities. One of the most dramatic areas is The Flume (in New Hampshire) which represents nature at its most powerful and allows some insight into the geological formations which occurred during the iceage in this region.
