If so, you can check out LL Bean in Freeport.

In Portland -

* waterfront district

* Portland Headlight in Cape Elizabeth

* Climb up the Portland Observatory(Closes at 4PM I think)

* Walk along the Eastern Promenade.

And if you are asking what to see between Acadia and Portland, it depends on if you take the quick route on the interstate or the slow route on highway one. The slow route will take you over the Penobscot Narrows Bridge, where you could stop to take the elevator to the top of the bridge supports. It will take you right through Searsport and Camden. Camden has shops and restaurants. You can go through Rockland or bypass it by taking highway 90 out of Rockport. Rockalnd has a very good art museum, The Farnsworth, which has a permanent collection of Wyeth paintings. It also has some nice restaurants.

After Rockland, you will go through Wiscasset, Bath, and Brunswick before getting to Freeport. Wiscasset is the home of the famous Red's Eats, world known for their lobster roll. Bath is known for ship building -- huge ships for the U.S. Navy. It also has a nice yarn store, Halcyon Yarns. Brunswick has a college, Bowdoin.

Freeport has restaurants in addition to LLBean and many other outlet stores. Our favorite restaurant in Freeport is Azure Cafe.
