  • We visited during the Easter holidays and the weather was bit cloudy. However, once we went there, the view took our breath away. This lighthouse shouldn't be missed if you are in and around the area....  more »
  • We live on an island with multiple lighthouses but this is our favorite lighthouse ever, If you stay in the area be sure to experience this LH at daybreak when the sun rises behind it and near sunset ...  more »
  • Great lighthouse for a quick visit and photo op. There is a little walk up restaurant that you can eat at and make the stop a little more substantial. There are a few benches to sit on to enjoy the view. It may be a little hazardous for small children to climb the rocks but the rocky shore is fun and impressive great for adults and older kids. There is a beach 5 minutes or so north if you want to hit the sand or get some ice cream.
  • Nubble Lighthouse is the quintessential New England lighthouse. York recently finished rennovating the lighthouse and it's been beautifully restored! It's a great place to stop by for photos, but parking can be very difficult to find, especially during tourist season.
