Camden, Maine has made the list of's 'Small Town America Travel Guide of the Top 12 Places You Need to Visit.' It comes in at number two on their list.

The website says "Camden is...a place where the mountains fittingly merge with the ocean."

Why was Camden picked?

Camden’s Main Street is rich with antique shops and art galleries that are great for browsing and window shopping – and of course, there’s that east coast favorite dish, lobster, which is served up at all the restaurants in town.

If relaxing isn’t your thing, just venture into the mountains and into Camden Hills State Park to explore up to 30 miles of hiking trails (for a great view, visit Mt. Battie, which offers great views on top of its 800-foot summit).

Camden is truly the best of both worlds, which is why Budget Travel has named the small town as a finalist on its 2013 “Coolest Small Towns” contest. And with a population of just 3,570, it truly is a small town in every right.
