For years I've been hearing about what a charming place Camden Maine is. Heard it was very artsy with lots of shops, artists all around, and had hoped to buy a few things. Allotted several hours to spend here but found that not to be necessary. Unless I really missed something the harbor area and " downtown" main street could... More

While staying in Camden we had the pleasure of visiting the Harbour Park and Gardens overlooking Camden Harbour and Waterfall. On Wednesdays during the summer they have concerts at the ampitheatre across the street at the library and on Friday I took a historical tour of the Library and downtown Camden. The tour ended at the Opera House which we... More

A great place to spend a day (or weekend) walking around the shops and waterfront. A must stop if you are in the area.

A nice little town; very touristy unfortunately, but my friends and I had a great time wandering in the shops. The waterfront is beautiful with all the windjammers.

The Camden Shakespeare festival was the highlight of our trip. To watch the bards "Midsummer's Night Dream" in this beautiful outdoor historic venue was summer magic. The professional cast- delightful and talented used the venue spectacularly, costumes artful and interestingly effective. Ticket prices offered an excellent value for live theater.

I am so in love with Camden! It's such a nice "village" without being too "touristy"! It has it all--history, shopping, the harbor, and great food! Who could ask for more? We were there for the "Art in the Park" event in July, and it was a really fun day. It was a juried art show, so the works were... More

Camden is a beautiful little Maine town. The shops are quaint and eclectic, not so touristy like Bar harbor. (Don't get me wrong, I like Bar Harbor, they have too many touristy t-shirt shops). You can enjoy a small park on top of the shopping district and the marina less than one block east of the shops. They have boat... More
