Our hotel is in Freeport, the Hilton Garden Inn, located just steps from the outlet stores & LL Bean.  You'll enjoy checking some items off of your Christmas list at the many outlet stores in Freeport, including, of course LL Bean's Flagship store.  Watch the Parade of Lights, venture into the Discovery forest to see over 400 trees covered in twinkling lights, and see the Aurora Borealis Experience.  You'll find an incredible display of lights throughout the grounds, as well as product demonstrations, a 60-foot holiday tree, remarkable ice carvings, life-sized gingerbread characters, carolers,  entertainment & more. 

 

In Kennebunkport, voted # 2 Christmas Town by HGTV, we'll enjoy the Christmas Prelude, their annual celebration of the holidays.  There are Christmas Craft Fairs, Tours of White Columns House, Holiday Table setting demos, complimentary wine tastings, DIY Santa Hat making, special sales and a fun parade of holiday hats led by the Patriot Fife & Drum Duo !  

 

In Boothbay Harbor, we'll enjoy dinner and see the biggest and brightest light display in Maine at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens "Gardens Aglow!"

 

We’ll also stop for a little shopping at Stonewall Kitchens Company Store, which features their entire line of specialty foods plus useful kitchen gadgets, cookware, tableware and home décor.
