We at LandVest know the virtues of this beautiful and welcoming small town and, finally, Camden is earning some well-deserved national recognition.
The time is perfect because this weekend Camden is hosting the annual Camden Windjammer Festival which is full of activities for adults, children (the lobster crate races are always popular), and even canine friends. And yes, there will be plenty of beautiful, historic boats and a gorgeous fireworks display over the harbor!
We wrote about Camden in our recent LandVest blog, but here is a short list of our favorite late summer and early fall activities:
- Afternoon or evening sail on a historic windjammer (Schooner Surprise)
- Dine at a James Beard nominated restaurant (Long Grain)
- Hike in the Camden Hills State Park
- Swim in Megunticook Lake
- Rent a stand up paddleboard (SUP) from Maine Sport
- Kayak in Camden Harbor, Breakwater Kayak Co. provides several options
