We never thought we could do this on Boxing Day but we went snowshoeing! It was great fun and not hard at all.

After gathering at the flagship store, we boarded a small bus with 8 others and were taken to a river launch a few miles away. John and Barb were thorough and patient as we attempted to find our "water legs". Within minutes, most of... More

Took the clay shooting class with my fiancée. Neither of us had ever shot before. The instructors were great at keeping everyone safe and teaching us to shoot. Really unique experience. Would highly recommend.

We had a good time and got to shoot targets that came from two different directions. Guns, ammo, targets, eye protection, and ear protection were all included. Our guides were not only extremely helpful,... More

Spent a few hours at LL Bean shopping for a few things for the upcoming Winter season. Have every thing you can imagine if you are interest in their type of clothing. The Ladies are very helpful and know their product.

My children (11 and 13) took the SUP course at the Outdoor Discovery School in Freeport. The teachers were good and the ratio of two teachers to 12 students was great. Equipment was excellent. We had a great time and felt confident enough to rent SUPs later in our vacation up at Acadia. Got a new skill, had fun and... More

Instructor Sam F. was knowledgeable and encouraging in our archery class. Very small class, only 6 people. This was a great activity our teenage sons and my husband and I could engage in together. The entire staff was very helpful and courteous. Clean, fun, and we all learned great skills. We returned without our target, full of the proof that... More
