“Where the mountains meet the sea” and “The jewel of Mid-Coast Maine” are often used to describe Camden. And, Camden is stunning and a great destination for a long vacation or weekend getaway. Whether you’re looking for outdoor activities on land or sea, lighthouses, museums, award-winning restaurants, arts and music, shopping, or simply a quiet retreat, Camden has it all and then some.
This classic New England seaside town is so picture-perfect that it was the primary filming location for the 1957 movie about a seemingly idyllic town, Peyton Place. Camden also features prominently in the films In the Bedroom, Thinner, The Man Without a Face, and Casper.
