Browsing For Bargains in Maine (2-Day)
This tour is designed for anyone who likes to “shop ‘til you drop!” We have combined two fabulous shopping areas for your bargain-hunting prowess. Shopping is spectacular when winter comes to Maine. Our first stop will be in Kittery, known as America’s Main Street. Kittery has one of the world’s largest collections of factory direct stores in the world and is considered the #1 outlet-shopping destination in New England.Our next shopping center, Freeport, is outlined in thousands of twinkling lights. Browse through the holiday shops, eateries and of course, L.L. Bean. Join the fun with a talking Christmas tree and listen to Christmas carols. Pre-Christmas Freeport is a way to shop in a relaxed New England atmosphere.
DAY 1: We'll board the coach this morning with one thought in mind...SHOP! SHOP! SHOP! We'll travel to Kittery, Maine...a "shopper's dream." Our first stop will be at the NH State Liquor Store #38 (located on the traffic circle by the hotel) where you can stock up on potent potables at a discount! Next we'll head to the Miracle Mile of Savings which lines Route 1 with 13 malls. With over 120 outlet stores and the Kittery Trading Post, you will see why Kittery was named #1 for outlet shopping by Women's Day magazine. Everyone will also receive a coupon book at the Van Heusen Outlet, which will save you more money on the already discounted prices! Low on crowds and traffic, this tour can be a nice pre-Christmas break for the weary, and a rest from urban stress. Our accommodations tonight are at the Best Western Wynwood Hotel in Portsmouth, NH (603-436-7600), which offers an indoor pool and hot tub. We will offer two shuttles from the outlets back to the hotel, one at 6pm and another at 8pm. Dinner will be on your own in Kittery Outlets before you return to the hotel; or you may dine or have a cocktail (on your own) at the Roundabout Diner & Lounge which is located right on the hotel property. Your evening is free to relax after a day of bargain hunting!
DAY 2 : A full breakfast is included at the Roundabout Diner this morning. Then we'll travel up to Freeport, for some terrific shopping in a historic village on the coast of Maine. It is hard to think of a name you can't find at Freeport...some of the major stores are Anne Klein Factory Store, Burberry, Jones New York, Ralph Lauren Polo, Nine West, Calvin Klein, Coach, Dooney & Burke, Timberland, and more. And the synonym for Christmas presents from Maine, L.L. Bean, stands ready to send its classic merchandise throughout the world. Your shopping can be combined with a pleasant meal at one of Freeport's finest restaurants, cafes or taverns. We'll leave Freeport at 3pm with an approximate arrival in the Capital District at 9:30pm. One stop each way.
