Belfast is a bohemian gem, a small city with a distinct and magnetic vibrancy. Located north of Camden (about a 25-minute drive), the thriving downtown houses hip new shops, long-standing retail stalwarts, and plenty of excellent restaurants—all housed in beautiful historic buildings just steps from the waterfront. With its many parks, numerous hiking options, and the not-to-be-missed Belfast Harbor Walk—where highlights include a working shipyard, rail trail, and a cross-harbor footbridge that is a memorial to WWI veterans—Belfast is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The excellent year-round farmers market attracts people from many surrounding towns and there is no shortage of festivals, concerts, or events to attend throughout the year.
Add to all of that a terrific school system and an impressive dog park, and it's a guarantee that the entire family will thrive. Locals love their special spot: this is an active community of involved people seeking to both preserve and better their beloved Belfast.
As far as properties, the world is your oyster in Belfast: maybe you're thinking about buying a piece of history with a majestic waterfront house or you'd like the convenience of an-in town condo. There's land to build and commercial spaces to create or occupy. Did we mention that the summer surge of tourists is far less in Belfast than in some of the surrounding towns? Let's get looking!
