Kids will want to keep coming back to this beachside inn
The kids are going to fall in love with the Higgins Beach Inn. Whether searching for sand dollars on the white sand of Higgins Beach (just a few feet from the inn), chowing down on fish and chips in the Shade restaurant or relaxing as a family in the evenings as ocean breezes waft in from your room’s bay windows, your children will feel they have gone on a real New England vacation. And there is so much to do in the area, from kayaking at Crescent Beach State Park to shopping in Portland’s Old Port district to touring the Children’s Museum of Maine or the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum. And don’t forget the summer-long carnival atmosphere at Old Orchard Beach.
