FILE- This Aug. 17, 2011 file photo shows a shopper leaving a Gap store in Freeport, Maine. An exhibit of Edward Hopper's paintings of Maine is breaking attendance records at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, but it's just one of three topnotch shows at museums around the state this summer and fall. Combine a trip to see all three _ the others are an Andrew Wyeth show at the Farnsworth in Rockland and a photography exhibit at Colby College in Waterville _ with shopping in Freeport, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, leaf-peeping, dining and maybe a trip to a spa, and you've got an ideal itinerary for a September getaway.
