Awesome views, refreshing breezes in summer, benches and grassy area to picnic on or stake out a chair/blanket to relax on...free parking and rest rooms, also.

The classic snapshot. It's there waiting for you and your phone or camera. Go early in the morning to catch the sunrise, or late in the day to get the best lighting, it's always picture perfect. Those early and late times are also recommended to avoid the crowds during summer and fall. Once you're there, get out. Walk around. Watch... More

This lighthouse is a short drive through a pleasant residential area. It is very scenic and a wonderful place to do a sketch or take a photograph. The coastline in this area is equally lovely. Definitely worth the short detour from the highway.

We come to coastal Maine many times during the year and stopping by at Nubble Lighthouse is a regular place that we enjoy stopping each visit. The views of the water are wonderful, and we always take new pictures on every visit here and pop them into our computer as screen savers to remember such a beautiful place.

I'm so glad we made the little detour to this lighthouse! This is a beautiful spot to take pictures. It was super windy when we were there so we did not stay too long but we took the time to take some great shots. We stopped by as the sun was starting to set - the pictures came out amazing.

A nice drive through the Town of York brings you to Sohier Park and Nubble Lighthouse. Loads of parking in an area that has wonderful views of the lighthouse and surrounds. Great for photos. No access to the lighthouse as it is on an island - but still full of character. Another great place to take in the fresh air... More

This could be one of the easier lighthouses to get to in Maine. You drive up and there is a large parking lot overlooking the lighthouse. It can be a bit crowded at times and it was chilly/windy the day I was there but beautiful nonetheless.

I had wanted to see this lighthouse for many years and was not disappointed when I finally had the chance to visit. It is a spectacular setting and easy to photograph. We were there on a cloudy, cold winter day and it was still a beautiful spot.

Visited family so a stop at this lighthouse is a must. In the winter its light up at nite. During the day its just a lovely view if standing facing the lighthouse. If the weather is sunny you can see Boon light house at about 2:00 its about 11 miles off shore I think. In 5 days I went there... More
