    Freeport, ME is home of the original/main LL Beans. Pretty cool to see it - but I wouldn't make it a whole day trip. A couple hours, on the way up or back home would do it. However, right nearby is the "Desert of Maine" and it's quite an interesting/fascinating little excursion. Acadia National Park is an easy/no brainer stopover. Bay of Fundy is another one. Camden and Boothbay are popular touristy places. There's lot's of lighthouses - Pemaquid, not too far from Boothbay is really nice one with fantastic rocks that you can walk out on.

    Note that once Fall starts to hit (even sometimes late Summer), the sidewalks start to get "rolled up" and there won't be quite so many touristy-places open.

    Depending on timing... make a stopover at Friendship, ME and I'll guarantee you one of the best lobster dinners (direct from a lobster boat) you've ever had, along with some "decent" scenery while we're cooking the lobster on the firepit.
