7. For concerts expected to draw large crowds, L.L. Bean erects bleachers and video screens to accommodate visitors, so arriving late doesn't mean you won't enjoy the show. You may want to bring a seat cushion with you, however, to make your spot in the bleachers more comfortable.
8. We were so impressed by how quickly we were able to exit the parking lot following each concert. L.L. Bean staffers do an excellent job of moving cars out following the show.
9. Want to stay overnight at a hotel nearby? The Harraseeket Inn (check rates at kayak.com) and the Hilton Garden Inn Freeport Downtown (book special rates via Expedia.com) are both within walking distance of L.L. Bean's Discovery Park. We stayed a bit farther down Route 1 at the Comfort Suites Freeport (book direct), and while the room was large and the rate was great, the indoor pool was cold and the beds were uncomfortably firm.
10. L.L. Bean Summer Concert Series shows may be canceled in the event of inclement weather. For the latest schedule updates, call toll free, 877-755-2326.
