I have done this trip a few times now and each time was worse than the last. I know many of these towns are smaller, but the police presence is absurd. The speed changes every few miles from highway speed of 65+mph to middle of...More

Went to LL Bean to hopefully make a purchase, after checking with another store with the same item that I was looking for. The service in the shoe department was excellent, even though they were very busy. I tried on the boots, walked around for...More
