For those heading south on I-295 toward Freeport between June 16 and August 31, you will encounter the complete closure of the southbound lanes of I-295.
According to the Maine Department of Transportation, the southbound lanes of I-295 will be completely closed from Gardiner Exit 49 to Topsham (just north of Freeport) Exit 31 from June 16 to August 31.
If you can stay just a bit longer, maybe two nights, you can actually see quite a bit more. Not as much as a three or four day visit, (but those are for future articles in this series!) but quite a bit more than a one day stay. We will still need to set some priorities and save some of the wonders of the Maine coast for a future trip, but we will have time for a little more this time.
People visiting Freeport for the first time often stay only one night, not realizing how much there is to do in the area. That makes it a bit of a challenge when they ask what they should see in the short amount of time they can spend.
So, what should someone see if they have only a day?
To begin, let's set some priorities. Do you want to shop? Do you want to see the coast? Visit lighthouses? Farms? Bird sanctuaries? Hike? Sail? Kayak? OK, now we can begin.
