We loved walking around Camden on our trip. There were such cute shops, and the little harbor was so beautiful. I could have sat at the library grounds watching the boats come in and go out for hours.

The homes and churches were amazing. Would love to have a book with pictures and some of the history of each home.

We spent a last minute week-end in Camden. This a very enjoyable little town on the coast with plenty of restaurants and shops as well as Hotels and Inns. We had a great time with good seafood (and other cuisine).
