Camden Harbor Overlook - Camden, Maine

View from Camden Hills State Park, Camden, Maine

When one thinks of Maine, thoughts of rugged coastlines, lighthouses, shipbuilding and lobsters come to mind. Spend a little more time there and you realize that there is much more than that to enjoy. I am speaking of the little towns that can be found all along the almost 3,500 miles of coastline. You read that right. Maine’s coastline is actually longer than California. Each town has its own personality. My favorite little town is Camden. Located about halfway between Portland and Acadia National Park, it has some great shops, restaurants and art galleries. Its small harbor is a place where you can hop on a boat and explore the local lighthouses or sail along the Maine coast. This photo shows the view from Camden Hills State Park, where you can overlook the town and its harbor.
