Camden – Where the Mountains Meet the Sea
The Camden area is a year-round vacation destination bursting with things to do. There is something for everyone! Camden is one of two places along the Atlantic Coast where the mountains meet the sea. This location gives visitors a plethora of land and water activities to enjoy. The area is rich in maritime history for the historian in you. Its great beauty inspires artists from all genres, and as a result arts and culture abound. Many Camden area restaurants are focused on locally sourced ingredients, featuring incredible seasonal specialties. There are microbreweries, distilleries, and wineries in the area to enjoy.
Camden is centrally located in Midcoast Maine, which is a great home base to explore all of the coast. One could easily spend multiple weeks in Midcoast Maine exploring the Camden area and then beyond. Guests can venture north to Acadia (the second place where the mountains meet the sea) and explore the southern Maine Coast on day trips.
Take me to Camden Maine is an extremely detailed site covering Camden and the surrounding area including Lincolnville, Rockport and Rockland. It provides details on what to do, must-see attractions, where to eat, and where to shop. It is a great first site to explore to get the big picture of the area, then hone in on how you are going to spend your time in the area. Perhaps even decide you need to extend your stay to do and see everything that you want to do.
The Penobscot Bay Chamber of Commerce provides details on all of the communities in the Midcoast region. You can find business directories for Chamber members as well as the events going on in the local communities.

Beyond the Camden Area
When coming to Maine, many visitors want to experience as much of Vacation Land as possible. Ted and I are becoming familiar with all there is to see and do in the Midcoast of Maine. We are not familiar with many other areas in Maine. As a result, we have partnered with Your Maine Concierge, a Maine vacation planner. Vanessa Santarelli, the firm’s founder, was born and raised in Maine and has traveled the state extensively. Vanessa is familiar with where to eat, where to stay and what to do throughout the state.
