We visited Freeport quite by accident, but wandered the streets to see what was there. It was just a stretch of old New England style buildings with so much charm that have been turned into Reebok and Banana Republic. It is sad that, what was...More

Have been to many Ralf shops eg Gun Wharf, ashford, Bicester and found many bargains ie 3 for 2 deals and bargain rails. This shop was very expensive compared to those I’ve mentioned and there were no children’s wear. Very disappointed.

We decided to go to Maine last minute. Found a B and B to stay in. We shopped a little, walked around, some good food and explored the area. Just had fun.

Several outlets we have at home, but many were unique to this area, which made it interesting and fun! Many offered free shipping with a minimum purchase and some even waived the shipping charges

I was there probably about 5 yrs ago, and remember more stores being there. Just went there last week, and found fewer stores. The prices were not outlet prices,either. Hardly any Maine stores, just the usual chain stores you can find any where.

Great range of shops which easy parking. Coach and Adidas had the best discounts. Some of the shops such as Tommy Hilfiger did not have much difference in price. LL Bean homeware to lovely but outrageously expensive.

Always fun to visit the factory outlets and find a bargain with that brand name. The discounts might vary depending on the season if the items that they have put on clearance.

Doubtful - Freeport isn't a mall, it's a real town that was taken over by stores. The anchor is LL Bean - check with them. If there's a shuttle or other means of getting there from the Maine Mall, they would know. TIP... More

I have another suggestion. Call LL Bean and ask. I am sure they can tell you what the outlet hours will be on the days you'very asked about.

Hampton Inn visit Challenger the bronze moose. Also Fairfield Inn by Maine Mall. Most of hotels in town are bed and breakfast style and on the pricey side
