Camden: Exploring All The Things To Do In This Harbor Town

Winter,Spring,Summer & Fall: Camden is a picturesque coastal town where the “mountains meet the sea” and has a lot for visitors to do and see while they are there. The summer months bring in the schooners who drop their lines in one of the prettiest harbors in the state. Visitors can take day and overnight trips aboard some of these antique tall ships. The streets are lined with specialty shops and great restaurants. Sitting on the corner of Main Street is Cappy’s Chowder House famous for their hot chowder and warm bisquits. Bayview Gallery offers some of the best works from local Maine artist in the state. Camden was also home to Edna St. Vincent Millay who wrote her poems around life in this small harbor town. The open amphitheater that looks out into the harbor is a perfect place to picnic or sit and enjoy the views or a great book. The setting for Peyton Place with the rows of victorian homes and ocean cottages makes this town the perfect place to visit. During the winter months the town opens their doors to the annual Toboggan Run at the Camden Snowbowl. The Snowbowl is also a great place to ski and though it’s a small mountain the views from the top overlooking Penobscot Bay are breathtaking. Camden is close to many of the island communities such as Isleboro and Vinalhaven which are only short ferry rides away. There are so many things to do in Camden no matter what time of year and it is definitely a place worth making the trip to for adventure.
