Wonderful shop, restaurants, even an art gallery or 2! Unfortunately it rained the 2 days we were in Camden but we still enjoyed walking around the harbor side downtown.

Enjoyed our drive thru here. Lot of nice old homes and other structures. We combined with a hunt for some of the places that in the 1950's Peyton Place movie. That was fun. Not sure how many we really found but fun anyway. You can get a map from the library.

Picturesque, but not quite the charming harbor town I'd imagined. We did enjoy walking around the harbor and downtown, a brief drive out High Street to Norumbega on a nice day with good fall color. More to see on our next visit.

The taste of old N England seacoast and harbor living that U imagined. Take a casual drive and enjoy-these homes r 115 yrs old but will cost several million to buy if on the market. Assuming U want to drop your million $$$ that way.

Really fun shops..much more than just souvenir shopping. Water and water features make this town a must see. Crowded and tough to park but go see it...only takes an hour or so.

High street is a very historic and beautiful area. Shopping, wandering, historic commercial area and homes. Incredible views! If you are in the area, you must take time to enjoy the view!

I am a resident of Maine. Today is 8/20/14 . I was traveling on US Route One through Camden and got stuck in the traffic that occurs every single summer. Now I am a resident, I should know better but to people traveling through Camden the best time is early morning to perhaps mid morning. It took me at least... More

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!
