A quite pretty lighthouse - closed to the public though but room for about 3-4 cars to park closeby to get some photos.

If you love lighthouses, Nobska is a must. Some of the best views are achieved at sunset. The tower and dwelling are closed to the public, but there is ample space around the tower for pictures.

This lighthouse is beautifully maintained but still an active Coast Guard lighthouse -- so you can't go in it. If you like lighthouses though, it's one of the most photographed so it's definitely worth going to see.

My wife and I stopped at the Nobska Lighthouse. The current facade was made in 3 pieces in Quincy Ma. A metal outer layer and a brick lined inner layer. It was quite impressive, and the view was outstanding.

The view from the base of the light house is breathtaking. And do visit the memorial to a victim of 9-11 just across the road. It is heartbreaking.

The Nobska Lighthouse is a definite stop if you are in the Woods Hole / Falmouth area. It has a classic New England design and represents a really great photo op. If you do stop, I would highly recommend going across the street from the parking area, to what seems to be a "memorial serenity garden". Here you get your... More

We have been to this lighthouse many times. It's easy to find but not a lot of room to park. There is an area across the street with a nice view. You can get some nice pictures of this lighthouse.

This is a wonderful old original New England light house. There is a great photo opportunity. It is well maintained and a beautiful thing to visit.

The view from the light house was beautiful. The light house was the smallest light house I had ever seen.
