Palace Playland arcade back in 1978, while our family was living in Buxton, Maine for a few years after Megan was born. To this day, whenever we visit this old gem up in Old Orchard Beach, I feel inspired and connected to my early days of creating little creatures from beyond. If you're ever near the southern coast of Maine, try checking the whole Old Orchard Beach area out for a great classic amusement park throwback experience. It has just the right amount of grittiness.
Also, Lisa's Pizza on the corner of Old Orchard St and 1st is eternally glorious.
