For those who need to be where the action is on the biggest shopping day of the year, Freeport, Maine is the place to be.
Freeport is the home of L.L. Bean and its sprawling campus, as well as dozens of name-brand outlets, many of them planning to open their doors at 6:00 a.m. that Friday morning. Think Patagonia and Coach, J. Crew Factory, The North Face, Tommy Hilfiger, Nine West and Jones New York – about 170 shops at last count – so there are plenty of options for shoppers of all stripes. L.L. Bean is, of course, open 24 hours a day, so early birds can head in at any time.
Freeport is located directly off I-295 (Exits 20, 22 and 24) and just a few miles from I-95. Freeport is also served by the Amtrak Downeaster train, so it’s an easy day trip on the rails from Boston. Visit Freeport.
