Get To Know Biddeford: The Sights, History, Stories and Foods of Biddeford
This 2.5 hour walking food and history tour along revitalized Main Street shares the “proud city rising where the water falls.” From its beginning in 1855, your local guide will share historical highlights of this bustling town, once an employer to thousands of new citizens working in the textile mills and a thriving theatre and opera scene, often a second stop on the summer stock route out of Boston. Under the roofs of some of the most historic buildings in America, we’ll explore a rich and fascinating history of a city that has been called Maine’s City of Clocks, City of Churches, City of Shops and City of Theaters.
Your guide will surprise and delight you with local treats along the way including a stop at a 4th generation, family owned and operated bakeshop. See if you can hold out long enough to reach the hottest new spot in town for a coffee beverage of your choice to enjoy along with your freshly baked donut. Then you will savor some delicious pizza from Maine’s original craft pizza maker for over 20 years before settling into some of the best local ice cream you’ve ever tasted.
