From West Coast to East, Great Lakes to Gulf, meet the 10 coastal towns that are sure to make you smile—for a weekend or a lifetime.
Nestled between green hills and a deep blue harbor bristling with masts (and a townscape dotted by steeples), Camden is an advertisement for New England charm come to life. Home to 4,850, this little enclave bustles with visitors during the summer, who wander its narrow streets and congregate along the waterfront. Camden also lures those who love the pleasures of Maine's myriad outdoor adventures: hiking, camping, mountain biking, sailing, paddleboarding, skiing, and snowboarding, and camping. One of the loveliest lighthouses along the Maine coast adds a final, magic touch to Camden.
