Maine has a gorgeous and expansive coastline with points, harbors and  seaways marked by lighthouses of all varieties – some very utilitarian and many quite dynamic and beautiful!

***********************************

3 )    The third “Big L” on Maine’s list is a bit less obvious.  How about “L.L.Bean.?”  Yes, L.L.Bean started out in Maine as a one room, one product operation in 1912. Since then it has grown to be the largest catalog supplier of outdoor gear in the world, offering well over 16,000 items.  The company’s operation is no longer limited to catalog sales.  It has over 25 retail stores in the U.S. as well as retail operations overseas – 20 in Japan and about 50 locations in China.  

Even with it’s global reach, L.L. Bean’s heart, and headquarters. remains in it’s city of origin – Freeport, Maine.  The Freeport location is clearly no longer a one room operation.  Indeed, L.L.Bean in Freeport is not limited to one store.  It has evolved into an entire “campus” with various stores and buildings offering different types of gear.  The place is huge!
