L.L. BeanIf you want to shop till you drop, L.L. Bean, which never closes, is the place to do so; but that’s not the only reason to visit. Inside the flagship store, pop your head into a fish-tank bubble, try shooting in the archery range, and check out the trout in the in-store pond. Browse the separate Bike, Boat, & Ski; Hunting & Fishing; Home; and Outlet stores. Beyond shopping, Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School offers hands-on programs, workshops, talks, camps, and clinics. Sign up for fly-fishing, geocaching, paddleboarding, sea kayaking, sporting clays, archery, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, outdoor photography, and other classes, or for guided multiday adventures and camps. And don’t miss the free Summer in the Park events, including a concert series.
