This lovely village has arts and crafts galleries, a few touristy shops, coffee and ice cream cafes, and several fine restaurants. Don't miss the mill river and its quaint bridge. Camden Harbor and its park are perfect places for admiring views of America that seem long-lost.

There are so many beautiful details to see on High Street, be sure that you walk so you can pause to enjoy the gorgeous flower beds, the details of the historic homes, go early to hear the birds!

Lovely shops & great restaurants in a quaint historical town. Easy walking & very interesting. We chose to stay right in town so that we could easily stroll everywhere. Good choice -- we highly recommend it for the scenery & convenience!

This is a really cute little town with an amazing view of the harbor from the park. The park/amphitheater were the highlights for me! The town is definitely worth a walk through. Shops are cute but very pricey - which seems to be the way in these little towns.

Never intended to boost the local economy personally but we kept finding shops with cool clothing and gifts and knick-knacks. Ended up having to buy another piece of luggage in order to haul all the stuff home.

Whenever folks ask me where they should visit in Maine if their time is limited, I suggest Camden and Arcadia. The Historic District offers an entire view of what Camden has to offer the visitor. Shops, beautiful picturesque harbor views, monuments, church steeples, and restaurants. The park has plenty of benches to sit and take in the view. Traffic is... More

Camden has a small, compact downtown area, very walkable. Lots of interesting shops and, of course, The Owl and Turtle Book Shop which is always fun to browse.
