Great spot for pictures, food and meeting fellow tourists. The parking situation is very challenging. If are not from New England, this is the place to go for a look at classic New England, and even if you are it is great fun.

Great area to rest. Wonderful place to take pictures. I wish that they would have paying tours to see the lighthouse.

Cape Neddick, or more affectionately known as Nubble, is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in Maine, a state that is filthy with incredible lighthouses. No, you can't actually go into the lighthouse like you can other ones but you can get close enough to get a great view. The whole area is wonderful, I've been to Nubble at bezillion... More

We love lighthouses and this one is in one of the most beautiful settings. must add it to your list. We can actually see Boon Island Light from here as well, six miles in the distance. We're here on a very windy day, so be carefull.

My kids and I drove along the coast, from Kittery to York, pausing here and there to enjoy the view, which was almost ours exclusively on this blustery, 20-degree March day. Somehow, the Maine coast was even more beautiful than I expected, and I attribute that to seeing it, in all it's glory, in the frigid temps. It made the... More

Maine brings some fog - and, so it was the day we were there (Fall 2012). You could barely see the lighthouse from the parking lot. However, it was still a very nice place to see - We just experienced a different vantage point... through FOG. From the pics. online - it's a beautiful spot. Would definitely go again... Try...

If you want to understand Maine without having to ask a single question go to Nubble Light, park your car and just gaze across the crashing surf at the island and LightHouse. Consider that a family with children lived there when I was younger and their clothes hung out to dry on the line. Maine is rugged, untamed and beautiful... More
