Some American friends of mine recommended me to visit Camden, NJ when travelling to the US for sightseeing. After searching a bit on the internet, I can't find much about tourist attractions in Camden. So some questions I have:

- what are the best places in Camden to visit as a tourist?
- does Camden have nice golf courses?
- what did they mean when they said I should check out Camden's 'multi-cultural vibe'?
- would a trip to Philadelphia be a good idea? I haven't heard much good about Philadelphia to be honest.

Some thoughts on this? Thanks.

There is no good reason to visit camden NJ.

Your American friends are clueless or maybe they are just pulling your legs. Philadelphia is full of history. Camden is full of..

Take a trip to philadelphia and visit Independence Visitor Center.

Independence Visitor Center
The Aquarium is worth visiting. Beyond that, stick with Philly.

Don't feed the troll!

Although, I must admit it's a good one.

I would you assume that he is automatically a troll?. You do realize that his location says "The Netherlands". It's clearly obvious that he is not an American poster, so why would you expect him to have vast knowledge about Camden?

The Aquarium and the Battleship are ok, but time would be much better spent across the river in Philadelphia, or up the road in other parts of NJ.

The Aquarium looks nice, thanks for mentioning that. I read something on a battle ship too, would that be nice to see as well? What about golf courses and the 'multicultural vibe' my friends told me to check out?

Really. You are telling me in the richest country in the world there are 'boarded up homes , ghetto, and slumps'? No offence, but I find that very hard to believe. It is fine to say you don't find Camden very nice but now you sound like you are talking about Africa ...

Camden is one of the most dangerous cities in the US. I have had to go into Camden for work. I have been stopped by police asking me why a white woman is in Camden. Drugs and violence are a problem. Although the aquarium and battleship have adequate security and are considered safer, the surrounding city is not.

Why would your friends recommend a dying city? Are you a troll just trying to cause trouble? The more I think about the more I think you are just trying to start something.
