Freeport Maine-- Home of L.L. Bean and more
Freeport is a quaint little town with interesting architecture and sidewalks lined with amazing shops, one of the most famous being L.L. Bean. L.L. Bean is a premier outfitter for sportsmen and aspiring sportsmen, their clothes, camping gear and fishing equipment are world known and their huge store is a number one attraction for those visiting Freeport. L.L. Bean has divided up their merchandise lines into separate stores to make it easier to find what you need. No more having to search through camping equipment or kayaks to find the perfect boots. The staff is eager to help and friendly; and you can't beat the L.L. Bean guarantee! If at anytime you aren't satisfied with your purchase or if at anytime it becomes damaged you can return it for a replacement no questions asked. They stand by this too I found out when my husband wanted to replace a sleep shirt he purchased years before because it got ripped. They didn't have the exact same pattern but still replaced it with something similar-- no questions!
Freeport is not only home to L.L. Bean but also to a wealth of smaller merchants and restaurants. And most recently an outlet mall (where L.L. Bean stocks some of its leftovers and mistakes-- really not worth a visit) featuring name brand and designer stores with great discounts. And the outlet mall itself is beautiful with modern architecture and brick walkways.
If you are in the area, say in Old Orchard Beach and are looking for world class shopping for recreational gear or designer clothing try Freeport. There are public parking lots and the sidewalks have many pedestrian crosswalks making it easy to navigate.
Freeport Maine has much to offer beyond L.L. Bean, so why not make it a side trip?
