These are some of the reasons that tourism is Maine's number one industry!

Here is a video of one of my favorite places to visit in the summer. I started taking the shuttle bus to O.O.B. when I was in 8th grade, worked there in high school and enjoyed swimming and playing in the sun by the lifeguard station in front of The Brunswick. I bring my family now so that they know the joy of Pier Fries and Lisa's Pizza Fried Dough. We love Palace Playland after dark!
