Freeport, Maine – Out and About
Welcome to Freeport
Bow Market – a cute little grocery store in town
Freeport sits on the coast of Maine and is a small town of about 8,000 people. It offers a number of outlet stores, is home to LL Bean flagship store (open 24/7 365 days a year), has a host of restaurants, a state park, and Wolfe’s Neck Center.
Who can resist a day of shopping at outlets (my husband for one)?

Brunswick is to the north of Freeport and is very scenic and has wonderful roads to drive around to see the bay and all the beautiful homes. Brunswick is known for Bowdoin College which has a great art museum and also has Harriet Beecher Stowe’s home she lived in while writing “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”.

Yarmouth is just to the south of Freeport and is home to Garmin who houses Delorme’s Eartha, the world’s largest rotating globe. It was fascinating!
