Memorial Day is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how you want to spend your long weekend. Camden, Maine, is an idyllic, seaside town on the New England coast and the ideal spot for an extended weekend getaway. For many, the goal of Memorial Day weekend is to enjoy the arrival of summer weather, yummy food, and time with our loved ones. There is an array of things to do in Camden that are perfect for accomplishing those goals.

Soaking Up the Natural Splendor of Camden

Camden, Maine, has a wide array of outdoor activities because of Mount Battie and Penobscot Bay. Exploring Camden Hills State Park is one activity you should not miss on your Memorial Day weekend escape. Located a few minutes north of downtown, hiking the Camden Hills provide you breathtaking views of Camden, Penobscot Bay, and surrounding islands. If you want to get out on Penobscot Bay, the best way to see it is by boat, whether you charter one yourself or book a boat tour.

If getting outside to you means relaxing in a vineyard with a wine glass in your hand, that’s valid too! Several incredible Maine wineries are only a short drive from Camden. Cellardoor Winery, Savage Oakes Vineyard & Winery, and Breakwater Vineyards are just some of our favorites.
