As soon as summer hits in Maine, locals and tourists flock to Old Orchard Beach. Whether it’s for the pier fries, weekly fireworks, or miles of sandy beach, OOB is a summertime hotspot. It’s prime people-watching, too, of course.
Ocean Parks Subs & Grocery
A cute little shop located right on Seaside Avenue offers all the goodies you need to pack your cooler for a day spent on the beach. Ocean Parks Subs & Grocery is close to your spot in the sand and is open daily for your beach day needs. It's the spot to hit for breakfast, lunch, sweet treats, cold drinks, fresh sandwiches, and lobster rolls, of course.
The best part isn’t even that they have everything you need but that they are fairly priced. It seems almost impossible to find a reasonably priced spot to grab food lately but this classic shop keeps it fair and doable. Plus, they have famous cinnamon buns…
20th Anniversary Cinnamon Bun Celebration
In honor of the shop’s 20th anniversary, they are giving away free cinnamon buns! But, you need to earn it.
The local business recently posted on Facebook letting tourists and locals know if they are in the area, to keep their eyes out for special rocks. If you find a hidden rock with cinnamon bun artwork on it like the ones pictured below, you just scored yourself a free fresh cinnamon bun.
You find a rock, you bring it in, and you get a free fresh Maine cinnamon bun, not a bad deal.
And look at these things… you’re going to want one whether you find a rock or not:
The first rock has been found and the cinnamon bun has been eaten by Abigail.
Her face says it all! I would be just as happy.
