We Mainers love our LL Bean. And the flagship store in Freeport? Well, it is totally awesome! I can’t believe it has taken me 15+ years to visit it. This series of shops (a village really) is open 24-7 … year round. And on a recent trip back from Nashua, NH to Bangor, ME … the kids and I took a break from the highway and shopped at LL for the first time. Good stuff …
He was mesmerized and quite impressed.
And you could literally hang out here all day. There are two cafes for all your stomach needs … as well as this (above) “family room” for relaxing, game playing and reading by the fire.
When we were done shopping (for Uncle Jamie, Daddy and Uncle John) … we were treated to an unexpected and totally “Maine Christmas” treat … a horse-drawn carriage ride through some of downtown Freeport … courtesy of LL Bean.
What a great impromptu evening of shopping, learning and enjoying the spirit of Christmas. I highly recommend a stop to downtown Freeport, Maine … and especially to the LL Bean Flagship store. And if you head another 1.5 hours up Route 95 … you can pay us a visit as well 🙂
