Freeport & Outlets, Portland
I did not take an exit, but the promotion ws surely out there-STOP and shop. The literature for the area featured all the brand names, and the highway exits nearly steered you off toward the exit, so you could buy something. They must have 60 shops, 20 places to stay overnight, and 20 restaurants.
If you develop an appetite from all the shopping in Freeport, pause at Jameson Tavern for a fantastic salade or a big bowl of steamers. Dating from 1779, it is conveniently located on Maine Street adjacent to L.L. Bean retail store.
Open 24 hours everyday, L.L. Bean, Inc. is quite an experience. Catalog products plus thousands of other items entice the sportsminded.
Visit one of the 365 Calendar Islands to see whales, seals and bird life, to have a picnic or better yet, to enjoy an authenic Maine lobster bake.
