Everyone knows about the Nubble and I have been there many time but each time it seems different to me. It's a view you need to see more than once....

If you love picturesque new england, then nubble light must be added to others like the motiff #1 lobster shack in rockport massachusetts. This is a beautiful spot to view the atlantic........sunny or stormy, there are unique views. A great place to take pictures or relax and reflect. A must see.

I love lighthouses and the Nubble is just stunning. I only wish it were lit up at night. The bathrooms there are clean. Parking can be tough but if you circle around once or twice, you'll find a spot, no problem.

We enjoyed the lovely ocean view and seeing the Lighthouse illuminated with the red light! Very scenic and fun for kids to see the Lighthouse in action!

This is a "must do". Historic and beautiful. Rock formations and lighthouse is so serene. Great photo opportunity. Well worth the stop.

This is one of my favorite spots in all of New England. Still the way I remember it 50 years ago. A real plus that it hasn't been commercialized.

I have visited Nubble many times over the years and it never gets old. It doesn't matter what weather is. In fact it is better when foggy and the light and horn go off. Parking can be hassle as it can get crowded but totally worth the view.

While visiting the Nubble Lighthouse, Bill Thomspn was autographing prints of the lighthouse and putting names on the boat in the print. Donation of $10.00 for small prints and $20.00 for large prints. All money goes to restoration of the lighthouse

This setting is so relaxing. We go there to watch the wildlife and the waves breaking over the rocks. If you want you can fish off the rocks and at low tide you are able to walk across to the island with the lighthouse. Just about everyone that goes there can not leave with out taking dozens of pictures. During... More
