It’s not just about the shopping either! The LL Bean Flagship Store also boasts plenty activities as well as a plethora of things to see. Watch the trout swim in their indoor pond. Or visit the 24 foot long, 3,500 gallon Riverbed Aquarium and see brilliant colors of the many species of fish swimming by. Taxidermy animals are on display throughout the store for your education and wonderment, including the famous display “The Final Charge” which depicts two Maine Bull Moose with their antlers locked in battle. The company celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012, and examples of their history are displayed throughout the store, giving a feel of a visit to a museum. If you are truly a lover of the outdoors, or just like to take in the scenery, the company also offers free, horse-drawn wagon ride. The Flagship store also offers various free demonstrations, clinics, workshops and taste testing daily.
Hungry? The 1912 Cafe offers a variety of delicious menu options such as fresh salads with your choice of in-store made dressings, wraps, oven baked sandwiches, and of course, several famous Maine seafood chowders.
Nestled between the four free standing structures that make up the Flagship Store’s campus is Discovery Park, where past daily free activities included live concerts, farmers’ markets, and festivals.
The LL Bean Flagship store is much more than just a shopping trip, it’s an adventure!
