Lodging & Transportation

Onsite Options at University of New England

  • Premium rooms: Premium rooms are suite-style double rooms and include air conditioning and linens, as well as a private bathroom in the suite.

The Biddeford/Saco Area

The twin communities of Biddeford/Saco are among the most scenic in New England, with ten miles of riverfront and ten miles of shoreline. Here you will find a great outdoors to explore on land or water. And the Amtrak Downeaster stops in Saco, which makes getting here even easier!

For water-lovers, the beautiful Saco River is an aquatic playground. Summertime visitors may enjoy kayaking or canoeing to where the river meets the sea at Hills Beach-Camp Ellis. Ocean kayaking and sailing are popular activities on Saco Bay.

Those looking for a different kind of family fun in the water can 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.

Biddeford/Saco has many coastal gems such as Ferry Beach State Park, the historic Wood Island Lighthouse and the Rachel Carson U.S. Wildlife Preserve, which provide great opportunities for sight-seeing, hiking and bird watching. Saco Bay Trails provide another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors hiking in the summer and snowshoeing or cross-country skiing in the winter. Families can incorporate Saco Bay Trails’ Great Outdoors Activity Book into the adventure for even more interactive fun on the trail. The book includes information about plants and animals one might encounter on their journey.

To learn more about the area's history and heritage, stop in at the Saco Museum.
