Straight out of a fairytale, the charming town of Camden, Maine is perched on a hill overlooking a horseshoe-shaped harbor peppered with masts of dozens of sailboats. The town’s location where the sea and the mountains meet is enchanting to visitors and locals alike. Camden condo rentals are popular for their return to a simpler way of life filled with moments that take your breath away as you soak in the expansive views.
Things to Do
Camden offers a number of things to do from cultural events held at its historic Camden Opera House to the unique Camden Snow Bowl, the only ski slope on the East Coast with ocean views. The ski area is owned by the town of Camden and provides an economical way (at just $29 a day for adult lift tickets) to enjoy the powder. During the summer, water activities are tops with sailing, especially on historic schooners; kayaking; fishing; and lobster trapping being popular activities. The northern Atlantic water is cold even in August so swimming is left to only the brave or foolhardy. If you’re up for a swim, head to Laite Beach or Megunticook Lake.
Camden Hills State Park is a wonderful place for tourists to spend time. This 5,700-acre park is an outdoor-lover’s dream with 30 miles worth of trails for walking or hiking. There are also as many as 100 campsites for those looking to take a break from their Camden vacation rentals for a night spent under the stars. Another popular part of the park is Auto Road, where families can enjoy a scenic drive up Mount Battie. From the top of this mountain you’ll also be able to see Curtis Island Lighthouse, which is situated at Camden Harbor’s entrance.
Visitors fly into Boston (three plus hours of drive time but more flight options) or Bangor, Maine (a little over an hour). While a car is not needed if you stay in town and want to walk to restaurants, the harbor, and the stores, it helps to be able to drive the gorgeous Maine coast and it's necessary because the closest airports are some ways away. Renting bikes is also a nice option. For people with cars, don't miss Acadia National Park, which is a picturesque hour and a half drive, mostly along the rocky coast.
Camden experiences four distinct seasons and it's difficult to pick a favorite. Spring temps are in the 30s-40s. Summers bring average highs in the 60s. Fall vacationers and leaf foliage watchers can expect temps in the 40s and 50s. Winter sports fanatics enjoy a brisk twenty-eight as an average high.
Winterfest celebrates the beauty of winter with snow sculptures, ice skating, and tons of cold weather fun in early February. It's Maine's Mardi Gras and culminates in the US Toboggan Championships. This is a popular time to visit so if you're planning on booking a Camden condo rental, do so early. July's Festival of Independence is a family-friendly event with parades and fireworks over the harbor. At the end of the summer, take in the Camden Windjammer Festival, a celebration of Camden’s maritime heritage.
Camden features dozens of local shops adorned with colorful awnings, quaint hand-painted signs, and flower boxes brimming with morning glories and petunias. The beauty of this town makes window shopping almost as enjoyable as taking home treasures from the friendly, local merchants. Pick up a pair of lobster-patterned pants or artwork from a local artist. Camden has a thriving arts community with many galleries dealing in all sorts of mediums and objects from jewelry to abstract paintings. If you’re simply strolling, make your way through the High Street Historic District, which has 58 buildings and has been listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
Camden, Maine is a trip for the senses with a number of delicious restaurants, stores with decadent textiles, and lovely music emanating from Harbor Park. In this town the pace is slower, the views are more beautiful, and your stress level melts away with every breath as you sit on the porch at your Camden condo rental.
