Stopped by Nobska Lighthouse on our way off of Cape Cod. I collect lighthouse photos, and this one is on a breathtaking corner but there's only room for about 6 cars to park there. Across the street, there's a little place to walk and take a few photos.

The lighthouse is located along an oceanfront road. As you are driving along, it just pops up! Really pretty and definitely a photo opp.

Amazing views and a tranquil place to watch the sunset! The lighthouse is a working model-so cool seeing the light blink at dusk!

I like going to Nobska lighthouse and looking at the view and at the lighthouse ( I like lighthouses) the only bad thing is there is hardly any parking and you have to be careful because the road is very narrow and has a ton of curves, one right before the light house

I'm embarrassed to admit that after living on the Cape all these years, this is the first time that we have visited Nobska! What a view! The drive down Church Street alone was lovely but as we rounded the corner in the fog you could barely make out the lighthouse. As soon as we parked the fog had lifted and... More

I love lighthouses, they are so meaningful. This one was beautiful, and the sunset was breathtaking! Worth visiting and judge for yourself!

Beautiful Lighthouse and coastline scenery. We enjoyed the trip and the view. Unfortunately you cannot go inside, it is roped off and closed. We still enjoyed seeing it. If you are out that way you should go if you enjoy riding and looking from the outside. My husband is from the midwest so he enjoyed the ride and seeing what... More
