Camden, Maine, is a charming seaside town where time seems to stand still. Located on Penobscot Bay and nestled between the mountains and the sea, this is a quaint, quiet place to get away from it all with award-winning cuisine, a great selection of galleries and museums and upmarket shops. Camden also offers access to the great outdoors, with trails lining the slopes at Camden Hills State Park. Camden has a good selection of accommodation too but for a cosy, homely experience it has to be a bed and breakfast.
