“The Jewel of the Coast” – Camden, Maine

On the western shore of Penobscot Bay, roughly eight miles northeast of Rockland lies Camden, Maine, a picturesque seaside village at the foot of Camden Hills. Its slogan is “where the mountains meet the sea” and is one of the most beautiful places in New England. Camden is referred to as “The Jewel of the Coast”. We always enjoy visiting this area of New England as well as chumming around with our good friends who reside in nearby Rockport.

A visit to Maine would be incomplete without enjoying a breath taking view from atop Mt. Battie, strolling and dining along Camden’s waterfront, and visiting the Farnsworth Art Museum, which houses the Wyeth Center, in nearby Rockland.
