This is one of those places that if you are near to it you are drawn to it, even if you been there before as each time is a new and refreshing experience. The water between the mainland and island frequently has puffins and other assorted birds to watch as well. Bring your camera.

Anytime day or night, visit this lighthouse. The setting is second to none. I took this photo at dawn in February. It was a little chilly, but the experience warmed me right up!

No matter how manner times I visit Maine one of my must stops is to the Nubble Lighthouse. I can put my finger on it but it calls to me as is call to those at sea. You get a sense of the history associated with this light and you too will keep coming back.

Great to view in the winter or Summer. During our summer visit, we purchased a print of the lighthouse from a local artist. During our visit in January, we stayed in our car because it was so cold, but it was worth the drive to see! The stark beauty of this location is breathtaking!

When traveling through Maine, do yourself a favor and take the turn up the small road that leads to the Nubble Lighthouse. It's not only scenic and historic, it's also a nice place to pause and reflect. I took many great photos, which I plan to paint. It's also a nice spot to hike among the rocks, have a picnic... More

No better vantage point to see the surf (and feel the wind, if you venture outside your car) on a winter storm day. Easy ride up, very picturesque lighthouse, and good parking lot.

If you're in the area, this is a must to see. If you're in the area around Christmastime, check out the gorgeous lights.

Felt like one of the kids. So beautiful. Burned in fantastic memory of our trip! Plan to spend some time hiking around on the rocks. Sit and soak in the honest, genuine, idyllic view of Maine.

I am eighty two. My parents probably first brought me to York Beach and the Nubble when I was less than five and I have been going ever since, even though we now live in Arizona. We have brought our five children there since they were young. It's hard to say how it touches you,-it just does. I can remember... More

This is a breath taking attraction. What we found out was that evenings are best for pictures. In the morning the sun is behind the light house and pictures come out dark. Evenings are the best. There's a parking area and a restaurant that serves good food. Parking could be difficult to find on a busy day. But you can... More
