Camden is an okay town, I personally think the people know each other by name and have some connection to one another which is a nice and welcoming feeling. Although if there were places to improve, I would have to say it's the old victorian houses that need to be restored. I've been inside of a few of these houses and they are absolutely gorgeous, it's just a shame that a handful of history is going to waste.
I like that it is smaller and you know most of the people around you and I would change there being more for kids to do to keep out of trouble.
