THE LOCAL’S TRAVEL GUIDE TO CAMDEN, MAINE

Whenever I travel, I find myself yearning to do whatever it is the locals do. To me, talking to the locals, going to the restaurants and places they go, and walking around while you do so, is how you truly get to know a town or city. It’s also where you can receive the best recommendations. Let’s be honest, a lot of places that we encounter along our travels are “tourist traps.” You know the deal… It’s rated #1 on TripAdvisor + Yelp, but really it’s nothing special. I try to avoid tourist traps at all costs, because they’re exactly that, tourist traps. Not worth your time or hard earned money!

I grew up on the coast of Maine (Owls Head to be exact), which is an area about half way up the coastline of Maine (known as the Midcoast area). The Midcoast is brimming with cute little towns that beg to be explored. Camden, Maine is one of those towns that makes up the Midcoast, that’s so quaint, it will have you dreaming of packing your bags and calling the moving truck. It overlooks beautiful Penobscot Bay, has a very walkable downtown Main Street, and is a wonderful foodie destination. In my opinion, the best time to visit is in September when the majority of tourists have cleared out; when the weather’s still sunny and warm during the day, yet a bit crisp during the evening and morning. The perfect cozy town for cuddling up with a cup of clam chowder, a blanket, and a good book.
