Camden Named One of the ‘Most Beautiful Towns in America’
We know how beautiful Maine is and now, the on-line magazine Conde Nast Traveler agrees. Camden has been chosen as one of the most beautiful towns in America.
Camden comes in the Top 5 at number 5.
Here's how the website describes Camden:
This classic New England seaside town is so picture-perfect that it was the primary filming location for the 1957 movie about a seemingly idyllic town, Peyton Place. The motto of Camden has long been "Where the mountains meet the sea." (Indeed, Mount Battie and Bald Mountain rise up above the harbor and the village, and a hike to the top of the former will reward you with a stellar view.) Though most of the village's commerce is aimed squarely at tourists, there are some gems; boutique hotel Whitehall is a white-clapboard beauty, and its restaurant, Pig + Poet, manned by chef Sam Talbot (a Montauk Surf Lodge alum), sources fresh ingredients from nearby farms.
