It's like a pilgrimage. Every time we come to Maine, we make sure to allow time to visit LL Bean. Just about anything outdoor related is available. All the other stores in town are secondary to this one. Don't forget to stop at Ben & Jerry's for ice cream. It's behind the bike shop.

Inspite of the size and how much stuff in the LLBean stores, it is very easy to shop here. One of the keys is the staff. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. With free shipping it is a great way to purchase when you are on vacation. When in Freeport, make sure you take some time to look around.

It's so much fun to see everything in the catalogue (and more) in person. And the sales staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. During our visit, we caught a bit of a fishing demonstration in their indoor pond. My toddler loved exploring the store - the pond, the fishtank, the moose etc.

We planned a weekend around this place. A huge store with a nice park outside. Children's area has some activities to keep the kids busy. Nice tent display.

On Tuesdays and Thursday, they have open shooting at their Discovery Schools' Fogg Farm location - just a few minutes from their main store. Well organized and well run with safety in mind. The LL Bean crew was VERY helpful and friendly as I and my two guests arrived to try our hand at shooting sporting clays. We each ended... More

The L.L. Bean store covers almost an entire city block, and offers everything imaginable for the hunter, the camper and the everyday housewife. We were very fortunate that many of their summer items were already on sale, and I picked up enough Bean T-shirts for my entire family. Staff were helpful to offer assistance, thereby making our limited-time stop more... More

We were in Freeport with friends on Memorial Day weekend and LL Bean is a must.. Such interesting displays, lovely clothing, boots galore and very friendly staff... An atmosphere like no place else; very rustic... Great feeling of open space, nothing crowded together... Very tasteful and so clean... Great coffee shop and a big front porch to enjoy your drink...

We stopped in Freeport the day after shopping at the outlet in Ellsworth. The store is sprawling but I was surprised that they didn't have more on display. In particular I wanted to see more tents and camping equipment. I have a 5 man dome tent from LL Bean and I wanted to see what they had done since I... More

Great deals to be found on camping equipment, sportswear, shoes and home goods. Lots of other great outlet shopping around, too.

I've never ordered from LL Bean before but couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit the store while vacationing in the area. Really enjoyed shopping. Lots of assistance from the 'green shirts'. The fitting rooms were large and well lit. I left with $200 of clothes so I guess it was a good stop. Also walked through the home store... More
