Camden: Five Fun Things To Do

Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall: Come to Camden and watch the boats sail in and out of the harbor, grab a warm coffee and sit back on the town pier and enjoy the sites. Get your skis and head to the snow bowl for a day of downhill skiing and while you are at it enjoy the panoramic view of Penobscot Bay from the top of the mountain. Sleep in and enjoy one of the many bed and breakfast’s in the area and then head into to town to have a deliciously hearty breakfast at Boyton & McKay. Hop on your bike and cruise up Route 1 until you get to Mt. Battie and challenge yourself to make it to the top. Climb up the rock tower at the top of the mountain and snap some of the best photos around of the entire town and Camden Harbor. Spend some time in Camden Harbor Park and witness the same inspiring sites that sparked some of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s most famous poems. Hop on one of the many Windjammer Cruises during a warm summer evening and enjoy the quiet serenity of the harbor and the twinkling stars above. Take a historical walk along Elm Street and enjoy the old sea captain homes and where the famous series Peyton Place was filmed. Stop into the Owl & Turtle and get lost in the shelves of books while getting cozy in one of their reading chairs.
