Tourism & Community


Discover the Biddeford+Saco region, a four-season tourism destination in The Maine Beaches area. While summer brings the largest influx of tourist to Maine, there is plenty to see and do here year round. The region is home to the southern coastal beaches, the Saco River and lakes Arrowhead and Little Ossipee as well and the region's highest summit, Ossipee Mountain. Autumn ushers in the transformation of green leaves into breathtaking colors attracting visitors for foliage tours.  Winter unleashes a host of activities from cross-country skiing and snow shoeing to ice fishing and snowmobiling.

While restaurants featuring Maine's lobster and seafood are in full swing during the summer season, there is still plenty of savory culinary fare year round to delight a foodie's appetite. The twin cities of Biddeford+Saco, divided by the Saco River, each have quaint downtowns featuring year round eateries, craft breweries, retail, festivals, and a budding art community anchored by a vibrant community theater.
