Nubble Lighthouse reviews
My sister and I loved our visit to Nubble. It was gorgeous! The views all around were breathtaking. There is also a great little restaurant with outside seating next to the gift shop. more »
While passing through York, I couldn't resist making a detour to see the lighthouse lit up for the holidays -- a sight I never get tired of. This year it'll be lit during the entire month of January..... more »
Beautiful lighthouse. One of the most popular throughout New England. Plenty of parking if you get there early during peak season, which is also free. The Nubble is on an island, so therefore is not accessible. However the photos from the rocks are great to even spectacular if you take your time to find the right spot.
Absolutely beautiful & well kept lighthouse. Lovely & reasonable priced gift shop. We were fortunate to be able to purchase a watercolor of the lighthouse for only $10, the artist was there raising money for the lighthouse and personalized the little skiff with whatever name you wished. Great day. Oh, we were so lucky there was hundreds of small butterflies on a beautiful bush of Daisies.
