Primo Network Adventures suggest this 2020 to visit Freeport, Maine resting on a quiet open harbor and is known for its fishing, canning, and farming.
There is a rich history in the Freeport community and is attributed by many to be the “birthplace” of Maine. Due to its open harbor location, it also became ideal for shipping timber, primarily shipping masts. Sitting by the shore and watching the sailing masts has long been a draw for visitors seeking some R&R, with a fantastic view to match.
Primo Network Adventures clients know that Freeport is not just a beautiful little Northern Maine spot for smelling the fresh sea breeze, it’s also great for shopping.
Dubbed the “Best Shopping Town in New England” by Yankee Magazine, it hosts a variety of shops, boutiques, outlets, and recreational spots. It boasts approximately 170 premium outlet stores, drawing tourists during the beauty of the spring-summer and fall months, but also during the height of the winter holiday shopping seasons.
It’s famous for being the home of L.L. Bean, and their outlet store is open to shoppers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
For a quick bite to eat, Primo Network Adventures thinks that “Bean” shoppers might want to head next door to Jameson’s Tavern, while visitors coming from out-of-state shouldn’t miss an opportunity to indulge in the state’s top draw – fresh Maine lobster. For an evening out on the town, go on over to the water’s edge and have a casual meal at Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster Co., or try the historic Harraseeket Inn for dinner. It has a casual tavern and a more formal dining room to suit everyone’s preference.
If it’s lobster you’re after, the Azure cafe boasts the “Maine Lobster Chef of the Year” of 2011 and 2012, as well as awards of excellence from the Wine Spectator.
Between shopping, dining, and the fresh harbor breeze, this is an excellent community for a day outing or an extended stay.
