Eating, shopping, gawking in Camden. Great place to walk about and view the harbor, buildings and of course the waterfall on the edge of town. Well worth the stop while exploring Maine.

It was so much fun for my wife and me to watch yachts, schooners and other ships coming and leaving the harbor. The flowers and park setting are so peaceful and relaxing that everyone should include this stop as part of their itinerary.
