Camden is a small town that is quaint and very family friendly. There is very little night life, but the location is close to other larger cities for those that want night life. Great place to raise a family and retire from the hustle and bustle of big cities. Moderate climate and friendly people.
Very small town with a lot of retirees. Known for the Cup and antiques. People seem to be friendly but to themselves. It's a laid back environment fishing, horse riding, and thrift stores galore.
