About Saco, Maine

This little city in York County manages to retain some of the small-town charm that other cities in the area have lost.

It's a unique mix of beaches, fields, bogs, forests and urban areas. So, whatever your interests, Saco can provide.

Saco has a rich Native American history that you can find out about during your time here at the local museums. Also, discover how it grew to become the city it is today.

In an effort to make the city more eco-friendly, a wind turbine was placed just outside the city limits. Most people tend to stop over here for about a day. But, then they miss out on everything this wonderful small city has to offer!

What to do

To learn a little bit about Saco and its colonial roots, head to the Saco Museum. There are lots of exhibits that change regularly. So, even if you've been before, it's worth going again!

The kids will love Funtown Splashtown USA. There are two parks – one amusement, one water. You can choose to do either or both! If you do both, you might need more than one day there to make the most of it!

The lines aren't too long and the water park is a great place to cool off on a hot day. It's family friendly, and there are plenty of places to eat and drink while you're there.

For something a little more grown up – but, still with things that the kids would enjoy – head to Ferry Beach State Park. There are lots of trails to explore, including a path to the ocean.

The kids can play on the beach while you enjoy the quiet, secluded nature of the white-sand beach and calm waters.

Unless, you don't want to relax… Some people prefer adrenaline-based activities during their trips. Don't worry, Saco won't disappoint – you can go ziplining through the trees during your stay!
