The Ultimate Guide to Freeport, Maine
Article By: Cathryn McCann • February 22, 2022
Freeport, Maine, beckons visitors with small-town charm, outlet shopping, and outdoor fun along the beautiful Atlantic coast.
Tucked between Falmouth and Brunswick along the Maine coast, Freeport is a lovely town most famous for its plentiful retail outlets and shops, including the flagship outpost of that classic New England brand, L.L. Bean. But its oceanside location affords visitors plenty of recreational opportunities, too. The 200-acre Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park is just a five-minute drive from the shopping district, plus there are hiking and walking trails developed by the Freeport Conservation Committee all over town. In other words, Freeport, Maine, is an inviting coastal town on Casco Bay that offers the best of both worlds.
