Pleasures of a Maine Vacation

October 9, 2017

By Mary West

The glorious scenery of the Maine shoreline close to Wild Acres RV Resort & Campground looks like it could have been the inspiration for some of Thomas Kinkade’s famous lighthouse paintings. Plan a fall camping trip here to enjoy what the area has to offer.

Portland Head Light and Fort Williams Park

Only 17 miles from Old Orchard Beach, Portland Head Light and Fort Williams Park are wonderful attractions in Cape Elizabeth. They’re good destinations for a day’s outing.

Portland Head Light, located at 1000 Shore Road, is a historic lighthouse and museum, which is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the end of October. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children.

The ninety acres adjacent to the lighthouse is Fort Williams Park, an area ideal for picnicking, hiking and kite flying. Peaceful and beautiful, the vistas of rocky cliffs and ocean waters provide a great place to exercise or relax. Admission is free, and it’s open from sunrise to sunset daily.

Ocean Park Soda Fountain

Reminiscent of the old-fashioned ice cream parlors and burger stands of yesteryear, Ocean Park Soda Fountain is an institution that has brought joy to generations of vacationers. Whether you eat breakfast, lunch or supper here, you can count on getting delicious food.

The homemade ice cream treats are amazing. Must-tries include the Raspberry Lime Rickey, a popular New England concoction, and the Boston Blackout, which is a chocolate lover’s dream.

It’s open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. The address is 14 Temple Avenue in Ocean Park.

Wild Acres RV Resort

Come to our coastal Maine RV park to savor the vibrant fall foliage for which New England is known. You can walk the nature trails and fish in the pond, as well as play an array of outdoor sports such as miniature golf, volleyball and basketball. In addition, Old Orchard Beach is less than a mile away.

For more information, please visit our website. To make reservations, call (866) 493-1313. The address is 179 Saco Avenue at Old Orchard Beach, ME.
