When you’ve already had your required fill of lobster rolls and beach time, check out these four fun things to do in OOB (and all are highly recommended on TripAdvisor!).
- Pirate’s Cove (70 1st Street)
7 minute walk OR 1 minute drive
“It has two separate sides; you can pick which one you want to use so you don’t have long waits! Fun pirate-themed holes with pirate facts at each hole! Really well kept and great prices!” – julianokatie
“What a lovely course, what nice staff, and what a view! You can choose one of two or do both courses – one takes you to the top of the mountain and another inside for a spooky treat.We loved it there! Our family was happy and everything was clean and well cared for.” – Shamachi
“They have an easy and a hard course. Very busy tourist spot. Make sure to go during off-peak hours. Had a great and inexpensive [time]. Could be tougher for small children with wait times and bottlenecks.” – Kirk J
- Palace Playland (1 Old Orchard Street)

8 minute walk OR 2 minute drive
“The kids had a blast here, lots of different rides for them to go on. Especially cool once the sun was down with all of the lights.” – onecoolraisin
“We loved Palace Playland. I was a bit worried when we waited over a half hour in line to buy wristbands but once we started on the rides there was never a line to wait in. Even if it was only my son and I on the ride, they’d start it right away. I loved looking right at the ocean as we were on the Ferris wheel.” – Eyembeth
“What a fun place for young and old. Great rides and fun arcades. It’s a must if visiting Old Orchard Beach!” – loriy163
- Old Orchard Beach Pier (2 Old Orchard Street)
8 minute walk OR 2 minute drive
“The Pier at OOB is always a good time. Food, drinks, and entertainment are great. We live in town and still enjoy the pier whenever we go.” – James T
“Couldn’t stop looking at the gorgeous colors around us and the ocean. Enjoyed drinks on the Pier. Highly recommend!” – Janell D.

“Be sure to visit the pier restaurant at the end of the pier….We sat outside and enjoyed the view. The food is casual and good. The drinks are fabulous. I had a rum bucket and my BF had a blueberry lemonade… both delish.” – Hazel R.
- Dunegrass Golf Club (65 Wild Dunes Way)

6 minute drive
“Course was in great condition, pro shop and starter very friendly. Need to know the course so would be helpful to have hole notes although GPS on cart was great. Kudos to the grounds crew.” – jmac182

“My brother and I have played Dunegrass several times over the last 2 years. The course is always in fabulous shape. There are never any dry spots and the greens are always immaculate. And fast! The pace of play is good too. There is a lot of distance between holes, so most people get carts, although we always walk.
As far as other amenities, the cart girl is never far away and the last few times I’ve been, there has been a grill off the 9th green where you can get a burger, a red hot dog, or a sausage. However, the most impressive thing that’s happened occurred last year. I was with a couple of friends and we went in to grab a bite to eat at the turn. We were told it was going to take about 10 minutes for the food. The manager told us to go tee off and he would personally drive the food out to us. Awesome!” – Rich O.
“This is a great test of a golf game: very fair, well designed, and fun! The awards party for The First Tee of Maine charity tournament had tasty food and an amazing staff – I would give the experience a 10 out of 10.” – jim477
