A daily planner
Destination Freeport Itineraries
There is so much to do here, that visiting Freeport Maine requires some planning to get the best use of your time. One can easily spend three to five days doing what is available within a short drive.
Major attractions (Area lighthouses, Portland and the Bath Museums) are large properties; it is difficult to spend less than a half day in each of these areas, it's easy to spend an entire day and feel that was not enough. There are numerous smaller attractions that can be visited in two hours.
Most attractions open about 9-9:30 each morning and close about 4:30-6:00 PM. Listed below are some examples of how you might organize your visit; what you do each day will vary, depending on your arrival time . Of course, we will be pleased to help you with setting up a visit to take best advantage of what Freeport and Mid Coast of Maine has to offer.
