Freeport is located approximately twenty minutes from Maine's largest city, Portland, along the northern reaches of picturesque Casco Bay. Its 37 miles of tidal coastline include numerous inhabited islands, as well as a mix of rocky shoreline, iconic Maine clam flats, and riverine and estuarine ecosystems. The Harraseeket River serves as the Town's primary deepwater harbor, and is one of the more protected anchorages in Casco Bay.
Freeport is perhaps most widely known as one of Maine's top tourist destinations. A mix of local shops and restaurants, national retailers, lodging establishments, special events, and historic points of interest in the Village area attract visitors on a year-round basis.
But many residents and visitors know a different side of Freeport, where the scenic beauty of coastal areas mixes with bucolic farm fields, historic architecture, and small town charm to create a unique community that is equally vibrant and relaxed. Not just a great place to visit, but a great place to live, too.
