Even though many people visit this attraction it is a large enough area you can have a quiet moment to take it all in. Lots of places to sit and watch the ocean. People are generally friendly. You don't have to wait too long for a parking spot (free) it is wheel chair accessible too. There is an ice cream... More

Doesn't get more picturesque than Nubble Light. Worth the side trip to see the lighthouse. Limited parking so get there early in the day. Well stocked gift shop.

Pretty view if you're in the area, but don't make a trip out to see it... Decent amount of parking spaces, good chance for a photo op.

This is the first lighthouse as you enter Maine or at least we think so. It is not to be missed . There is a great eatery just off the parking lot that you will find good Maine eats including Lobster roll.

Too many crowds in summer. Go late spring or early fall when you can have some time...and space...to just sit on the rocks and enjoy some peace without having to walk around so many others. It's a popular place to go for taking pictures.

A very pretty lighthouse on a very pretty stretch of coast with great views. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

I spent many a childhood summer in York Beach and a trip would not be complete without a stop and picture at Nubble Light. Make sure you go on a clear day, early morning, to get the bet view and least amount of crowds.

Picture perfect. Special place to our family - we have spread ashes of relatives here. Worth the visit if you are in the area.
