One of the most quaint and pristine downtowns we drove through on our roadtrip through the Northeast. Most shops were closed as we walked at about 6pm, but still worth viewing the architecture and history of this beautiful town!

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.
