Top (NEW) Things to do in Camden Maine this Season

The fully renovated Captain Swift Inn is only one of the many new attractions in Camden Maine.  Many come to Camden year after year for the world class sailing and views. The mountains and the sea are the calling cards of this small town. In addition to the lovely landscape, the Main Street and town always offer unique and interesting Maine gifts and treasures.  The Camden restaurants provide local seafood and Maine brewed beers. While the consistent loveliness of the town is a reason to return year after year, we are pleased that there are some new businesses and activities to add to the mix.
The Top (NEW) Things to do in Camden Maine:
There are new shops in the downtown. If you have been to Camden before, you know that there is an array of boutique shops. Camden’s Main Street is unique in that it is not overwhelmed with tourist trap shops. The collection of shops offer truly beautiful and unique gifts. In addition to the long standing shops like Glendara Lavender Farm and Maine Sea Bags, there are 2 new clothing shops in town. FatFace and Barefoot in Denim. FatFace offers fine value clothing for the entire family and Barefoot in Denim offers affordable curated clothing for women. Both make a nice addition to the downtown experience.
New Art Gallery.  PageGallery is a contemporary art gallery exhibiting American paintings, drawings and sculpture. Colin Page is a nationally known artist. His paintings capture landscape and light. Even if your pocketbook does not allow you to purchase one of these lovely paintings, we highly recommend you stroll through to see the art.
Blueberry Distillery. Just when you thought you knew everything about blueberries! We are pleased to see that a new blueberry distillery is open in Camden Harbor. Visit their website to see dates and times of upcoming events.

Jazz in June.  For the first time ever, Camden Maine will host Jazz in June. Camden Maine has always had a hidden musical charm. Sea shanties can be heard at the Camden Public Library while the high school often launches talented local bands and singers. In addition to the plethora of local talent, artists such as Don Mclean and the famous Jazz saxophone player Wayne Delano have called Mid Coast Maine home for years. The Captain Swift Inn is a sponsor of the event for 2019. We look forward to this fun filled 3 day music festival.
New Out Door Bar at HoxBill Restaurant - Here on the coast, we can not get enough of the water views. The more chances to sit outside and enjoy the harbor with a drink in your hand, the better. HoxBill, which is a fine upscale restaurant in downtown Camden Maine, has added an outdoor bar. Hoxbill is associated with its neighboring restaurant Kurafuto and Blaze Brewery. The beer brewed, right onsite, is fantastic. Try the Tiny Room Brew, you won't regret it. 

Equinox Guiding Service - If you have ever been to Camden Maine, then you know Camden Hills State Park is a very special place. Now, in addition to hiking the many tails, you can also climb the hills with a guide. Whether you are a novice or an expert, the guides can accommodation you. See Megunticook Lake like you never have before. This guiding service compliments the lifestyles of the locals that love the outdoors. We look forward to working with them. The Captain Swift Inn has a Rock Climbing package with Equinox Guiding Service.
