Downtown Camden is picture postcard pretty. Nice upscale shops, good restaurants, great coffee at Zoots. The views are amazing!!! This is the location for the classic film Peyton Place.

This is a very nice area near the waterfront. Some interesting shops and places to eat. It is a small area so you can cover the entire place in an afternoon. I suggest walking through the park on the east wide of town. Lovely views...More
