Biddeford is a city of 21,000, located between the towns of Kennebunk and Old Orchard Beach, in the southwestern coastal region along the I-95 corridor. It is comprised of the smaller distinct villages of Biddeford Pool, Hills Beach and Fortune Rocks. Biddeford and its' sister city, Saco are called "The scenic twin cities of Southern Maine." This unique area is one of the most scenic in Maine with abundant outdoor recreation opportunities including swimming and other beach activities, boating and fishing, hiking and biking, sea kayaking, ocean sightseeing cruises, golf and nearby amusement parks. Fortunes Rocks Beach in Biddeford is a lovely beach just over two miles long, popular for swimming and with birdwatching nearby. Biddeford's downtown area is filled with historic buildings and churches, and just a few miles east of the City Center lies ten miles of magnificent coastline with sandy beaches and rocky cliffs. To the west are rolling hills and horse farms, creating a peaceful, rural landscape. Just three miles northeast of Biddeford is Old Orchard Beach, home to a popular seaside amusement park that resembles Coney Island. Here, the pier is lined with shops, restaurants, midway games, rides and a video arcade. In the summertime, visitors enjoy fireworks on Old Orchard Beach next to the pier. Other area attractions include the Biddeford Pool & Wood Island Lighthouse and the Kennebunkport Dock Square.
