About Freeport

Perfectly situated where Greater Portland meets Midcoast Maine, Freeport’s charming, historic and pedestrian friendly village is perfect for shopping famous brand outlets and local boutiques loaded with unique gifts and great deals. In addition to being New England’s favorite shopping destination, Freeport offers award-winning cuisine fresh from local farms and the sea, four star lodging and lots of fun activities for all ages! Only minutes from the downtown shopping district you will find an oceanfront state park, a mountain that’s quick to summit, a beach perfect for families, and even a desert! Rich in history, nature and the arts, you’ll come to shop and stay to play.

Home to the L.L.Bean Flagship Store, Freeport offers a shopping experience like no other. Where else can you enter a beautiful 19th century brick house and find one of your favorite national brands or acclaimed local designers? While you’re here don’t forget to explore our side streets to find our hidden gems. Our local boutiques are the perfect place to find the unique artwork, jewelry, accessory, home décor or clothing item you’ve been searching for.

Freeport may be famous for its fabulous shopping district, but did you know that less than ten minutes outside the village you will find an oceanfront state park, a beach perfect for families, a mountain with beautiful views from the summit or even a desert?! Simply pick a direction and you’ll find a breathtaking natural wonder. It’s only fitting that the home of the L.L.Bean Flagship Store and their Outdoor Discovery Programs is also the destination for adventures, activities, classes and events, indoors and out.

Freeport presents a delectable dining experience. Whether it’s breakfast al fresco, lobster rolls on the wharf or exquisite dinners concluded with wickedly wonderful sweets, we have the cuisine to tempt your tastebuds.
