The Cape Elizabeth Light is one of two associated with Two Lights State Park. It is a pretty facility but not one you can climb. You can get great pictures of it from the Lobster Shack restaurant near the parking lot of the Light.

This lighthouse was not as picturesque as some other lighthouses along the Maine coast; however, the rock formations below the lighthouse were the best part of this visit. My husband and I spent a big chunk of our morning climbing and exploring the formations. This...More

0 Votes No the lighthouse is closed. You cannot go in. However it is a beautiful area. Great for a picnic or just to spread a blanket & relax
