Gear Up To Get Out in Freeport, Maine

L.L.Bean Bike, Boat & Ski Store

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to outdoor discovery in Maine. The rivers, lakes, oceans and mountains all provide an opportunity to rejuvenate the soul, and experience the splendor of nature. Through activities like kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking, biking, skiing and snow shoeing, you can get outdoors and enjoy every season. While Freeport has it’s own opportunity for adventures, it has an even greater supply of outdoor outfitters to get you geared up.

Starting with the heart of Freeport, L.L.Bean’s Flagship Campus sprawls across seven acres in Freeport. You can find everything you need for your next great Maine adventure. Their classic lodge-inspired buildings feature gear and clothing to enjoy all manners of outdoor sport, and they have been the pinnacle of customer service for over 100 years.
