COLORS OF CAMDEN MAINE
Maritime Fall Foliage & Event Calendar make Camden Maine a unique New England Fall Vacation.
The fantastic spectacle that is the maritime fall foliage, the lush mountains and calm ocean set Maine fall foliage apart from other New England foliage experiences. Camden Maine Innkeeper, Kristen Bifulco, stated “guests call us in January and ask when the leaves are going to change, visitors look forward to Camden’s Fall foliage all year round.”
The Colors of Camden, like an antique New England quilt formed by the meeting of Camden Harbor, Beauchamp Point, Penobscot Bay and the Camden Hills whether viewed from the air, aboard a scenic helicopter tour, the peak of Mt. Battie, Maiden’s cliff, aboard a Historic Schooner, or the lawn of the Camden Public Library, are breathtaking. Each aspect of land, mountain, sea and sky form a unique patch in this harmonious whole of the natural beauty of Autumn: deep ocean blue and light sky blue mingle with wispy white clouds, and the deep reds of sugar Maples veined with the vibrant gold and yellow of beeches, birches, elms, and green and black ash, and the rust and amber of oaks. The backdrop of Windjammer sails and American Bald Eagles in addition to leaves and trees, make Camden Maine a unique Fall experience.
In addition to the inherently economical fun of leaf peeping, Camden has lots of local events that are worth taking that scenic Rt1 trip up the coast to enjoy. Fall events are for the sophisticated movie buffs, boat lovers, cutting edge leaders and wine aficionados.
For those that want to see Camden fall foliage from the sky, Spirit Soaring Glider Rides http://www.spiritsoaring.org/ is a great choice.
To see the foliage from the sea: Schooner Olad, Schooner Surprise and Schooner Heron offer great harbor views.
