Freeport is located along the shores of upper Casco Bay, approximately 20 minutes north of Portland. It is best known for its outlet shopping and as the home of L.L. Bean. You can also find locally owned shops throughout the downtown area that offer Maine-made items.
You can visit Jameson Tavern, built in 1779, as well as several of the town’s original schools, homes and churches.
You can go birdwatching or hiking along the coast at Wolfe’s Neck Woods. You can also see the "Desert of Maine"—the desert was once a fertile farm, but overproduction caused the topsoil to give way to sand. The sand eventually engulfed everything in its path.
