Camden, Maine: Charming Town on Penobscot Bay
Penobscot Bay is located on the southern coast of Maine, where giant granite boulders give way to hills and towering pine forests. The quiet town of Northport is one of several former fishing hamlets situated along the coast. The postcard-worthy town center features charming Victorian homes, antique stores, and restaurants serving wines from nearby vineyards.
In warmer months, vacationers come to the area to go kayaking and sailing or enjoy a bird's-eye view from atop one of the local lighthouses. Nearby Camden Hills State Park is popular in the fall, when you can photograph the brilliant foliage of the surrounding woodlands. In winter, travelers trade their hiking boots for snowshoes or set out on one of the snowmobiling trails.
