Great place for families. Small town feel can be good or bad, but lots of local festivals make it exciting and Portland is nearby. Schools have a strong atmosphere of enrichment and great resources for a semi-rural area, but lack the academic rigor of nearby districts.

Freeport is a small, community driven town that prioritizes safety and accessibility to resources. The school department is outstanding. Many family-friendly events throughout the year.
Small, but very close knit community. Everyone is very nice and the shopping outlets are a must go. L.L Bean is just phenomenal.
