We were lucky to see the lighthouse on night it was lit for the holiday season. Absolutely beautiful. I've added a picture of lighthouse during the day and at night after the lighting.

The Nubble Lighthouse is one of the quintessential Maine destinations. Use a GPS to get to it, as it winds through a residential area before opening up to a gracious viewing area with ample parking. We were two friends traveling in Maine. We visited right at sunset, so the view was quite nice and the light was nice. I would... More

Bring your layers until spring. It's cold and windy and Fox's Restaurant and the bathrooms are closed. Still worth a stop for taking pictures and getting out on the rocks for a quick stop while you are in the area!

though we did not stay long, the lighthouse and the surrounding scenery was gorgeous. I really liked that you could not go all the way up to the lighthouse as it kept my pictures so pristine and clutter free!

There are lighthouses and there are picturesque lighthouses. But Nubble Lighthouse is the best example of any I've seen. Perhaps it's rocky Cape Neddick Nubble, the tiny emerald island on which the lighthouse stands that sets it apart...or maybe the brilliant red and white paint on the clapboard buildings that balance the scene...or the clear New England air and deep...

This was difficult to get to, going through very narrow streets. And when we finally got there, there wasn't really much to see. There's no transportation to the lighthouse. A disappointment!

Fun photo ops even for young photographers ... for some reason, every picture comes out great! Must be the subject! My 11 year old won first place at the fair for her photo of the Nubble. Congrats!

We were there in late Oct., but the weather was perfect, as long as we wore our jackets!! There is NO direct access to the lighthouse, but that doesn't interfere with the beauty of the experience. There are benches for sitting and plenty of parking places.
