Welcome to the Biddeford-Saco region, a true vacationland area. If you are visiting, welcome to the area. If you are looking for a place to live, start a business or are just passing through, you have come to the right place.
We offer miles of white sandy beaches and numerous outdoor activities to enjoy, including biking, boating and clean family amusement parks. Our restaurants are second to none and the affordable accommodations will make your stay a memorable experience.
Education and culture rank at the top of the list of our priorities in this community. The local school systems are top-notch and our two colleges are respected centers of learning throughout the country. The historical significance of the area is preserved in the architecture of our Main streets, the homes and rows of brick factory buildings. Visit our museum, historical society and nationally awarded “Main Street, Maine” communities.
We are experiencing a revitalization of our former factory buildings; we are a growing economic area and are maintaining a viable housing market. Our area is easily reached via the Interstate highway, by picturesque Route 1, by Amtrak train and by air.
We hope you choose to visit us and know that you will plan to return again once you see what we have to offer.
Be sure to include a visit to our specialty restaurants and shops in Biddeford and Saco. Both cities have the distinct honor of being “Main Street, Maine” communities.
The shops in the area include bakeries, specialty coffees, imported gifts, collectibles and home décor shops, candy gift shop, jewelry, clothing, Amish-style and handcrafted furniture, framed prints and fine art and art supplies. Stop at the Chamber of Commerce for information or directions to additional shops and restaurants off Main Street.
