In the twin communities of Biddeford, Maine and Saco, Maine, you can visit miles of riverfront shoreline. Ferry Beach State Park, the Wood Island Lighthouse and the Rachel Carson U.S. Wildlife Preserve, where you can go sightseeing, hiking or bird watching. Ferry Beach does not have a lifeguard.

Water Recreation

You can go kayaking or canoeing to the point where the Saco River meets the sea at Hills Beach-Camp Ellis or ocean kayaking and sailing on Saco Bay. You and your children can also check out Funtown/Splashtown U.S.A., the largest family-themed amusement and water park in northern New England, or Aquaboggan Water Park, Maine’s original water park.


You can go hiking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on the Saco Bay Trails. You and your family can incorporate Saco Bay Trails’ Great Outdoors Activity Book into the adventure. The book includes information about plants and animals you might encounter on your journey.


In June, you can take part in the festivities of La Kermesse, the four-day Franco-American festival that features a parade, concerts, dances and fireworks. To learn more about the area's history and heritage, you can stop in at the Saco Museum.
