Experience more Maine – ride the Amtrak Downeaster to Freeport. Sit back, relax and avoid the hassle of driving and parking.
Car-free is easy in Freeport—Downeaster riders step off the train into a shopper’s paradise. Freeport’s unique balance of national retailers and locally owned shops and boutiques is also home to world famous L.L.Bean. Enjoy lunch or dinner at any one of the restaurants scattered through the village, where you can cozy up to the fire right in your table at Linda Bean’s Kitchen, sample farm-to-table fare at the Harraseeket Inn, enjoy the creative cuisine at the Azure Café, even sample international flavors at Fuji Sakura or Petrillo’s Italian.
There’s always something happening in the Freeport area, from live music to spending a day on Wolfe’s Neck Farm. For a list of all Freeport events, visit www.freeportusa.com/events.
The L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery School offers the outdoor enthusiast, both expert and novice, great ways to get outside and experience the Maine outdoors.
Whether you’re here for a special event, outdoor activity, or just the best shopping in Maine, you’ll find that the train has plenty of storage room for shopping bags and room to stretch sore muscles—so take advantage of all Freeport has to offer and then relax with a glass of wine in the Downeaster Café on the ride home.
