Description
Founded in 1789, the town is best known as the home of the L.L. Bean sporting goods store, which is open daily 24 hours, 365 days a year. More than 170 other retail shops and name-brand outlets surround the village.
In addition to retail outlet merchandising, chief contributors to the economy are tourism and lobstering. The 40-foot Big Indian statue, 1 mile north of I-295 exit 17, is a frequently photographed local landmark.
Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park, 426 Wolfe's Neck Rd., offers several self-guiding nature trails that include views of Casco Bay and the Harraseeket River. The park, which is open year-round, also presents educational and interpretive programs.
