Soft sandy beach and a historic pier are the shoreside seducers at Old Orchard Beach where paddling sports and charter fishing fill long days, though be sure to venture inland long enough to sample succulent local lobster.
Maine's Native American Heritage, specifically that of the Wabanaki, is the focus for the Abbe Museum's exhibits of art and artifacts. Having grown from its early days as a trailside museum in Acadia National Park, the museum now includes both a larger downtown site and the original location, both geared to encourage understanding of the Wabanaki people and history through visually stimulating exhibits. See an authentic birchbark canoe, take in hand-crafted baskets and centuries-old tools and textiles as you explore this pleasant cultural facility.
