Camden, Maine is proud to call itself the "Jewel of the Coast." A beautiful seaport town with a harbor full of sail boats, Camden has been used as the setting for so many movies, from Carousel to Peyton Place, that it is what many people think of when they think of New England. With a series of annual festivals running all year round, including the US Toboggan Championships, the Summer HarborArts Juried Arts & Craft Show and Windjammer Weekend, there is always something to do in Camden.

A one-hour-up/one-hour-back hiking trip is the best way to see this mountain.
we drove up on the Auto Road, but there are many trails and opportunities for walking cycling etc. it is unusual to have a mountain right next to the harbor, and the view is spectacular

Located 5 miles inland from the Camden waterfront sits our 68-acre property complete with our 200-year-old barn-turned-tasting room, gift shop, vineyard and winery. Join us for a complimentary wine tasting, a glass of wine on the back deck, a complimentary winery tour or in-depth VIP Tour, and locally and internationally made cheese, salami, sandwiches and cheese plates. We also offer a variety of events, from weekend food & wine pairings to Pairings 101 classes, winemaker dinners, cooking classes and al fresco events down in the vineyard.
This is our second visit to the winery. The people were so friendly and welcoming! The wine was great, reasonable priced and the lunch we had was just perfect to sit on the deck and enjoy a nice glass of wine overlooking the lush green vineyard!

Rockport is the prettiest Harbor in Maine! It is tucked away from the "touristy" areas and a nice place to just sit and enjoy the view.
"Andre" is a beautiful sculpture with a heart-warming true story.
The area has benches placed around the waterfront and a couple of picnic tables. We stopped by Rockport Harbor 3 times in a week!

Capt. Matt was very personable and knowledgeable about the boat and the sea. He was very solicitous of an elderly woman on the voyage and attended to her without causing her to feel uncomfortable. He has a great sense of humor, and was able to answer any question asked. He offered on-going commentary about the boat and the area. For the next several months he will be varnishing the boat and getting it ready for your trip next year. A wonderful experience for this flat-lander from Iowa.

Thirty miles of hiking trails keep the staunchest hiker trekking along.
if in Camden and wanting to get away from the ocean (and the lobsters), take a hike in beautiful Camden Hills State Park (don't just drive up to the lookout in your car, but walk or hike one of the many trails)

Added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1989, Camden's official historic district comprises fifty-eight buildings on High Street between Main Street and Sherman Point Road.
It was so much fun for my wife and me to watch yachts, schooners and other ships coming and leaving the harbor. The flowers and park setting are so peaceful and relaxing that everyone should include this stop as part of their itinerary.

Scenic mountain lake with clean clear water suitable for boating, kayaking, or swimming (in warmer months). Free access from public boat ramp at the south end off of route 52 (Mountain Road).
Be aware that it can become quite windy with little warning even on clear days. Great places to beach and picnic.

The park abuts an incredibly scenic harbor bordered by tree lined ridges bursting with colorful fall foliage. The tall white spire of a century old church and an old New England town give it added beauty. Definitely worth a stop if touring this part of coastal Maine.

Really is a Very Nice Library. Old part of it is absolutely beautiful and well cared for. New part with the quasi-underground side of the hill entrance is cool and tastefully done.

This lighthouse dating back to early 1800's remains active to the present. It is truly picturesque and can be seen from your schooner/sailboat or from the nearby shoreline. The latter is best from an accessible path along Bayview Street just southeast of the harbor area. A sign posted to a tree signals the entrance to the outlook where you can snap photos of the lighthouse and island.
