My wife and I wanted to lighthouses along the east coast and so we traveled to York to see the Nubble Lighthouse. Although it was under some restoration work it still was a beautiful lighthouse to see. We could wander out on the rock and...More

No matter how many times I drive through Sohier Park to view the lighthouse, I am never disappointed. It sits so peacefully on an island with never a sign of life except for the seabirds. And yet , so close you feel you could reach...More

It is definitely worth a visit for photos. You can not visit the lighthouse itself as it is on an island. There used to be a cable vehicle for the lighthouse keeper to "commute" on. It no longer exists. There is a nice small shop...More

We were disappointed that when we visited the lighthouse it was surrounded by scaffolding that partially obscured it. The other disappointing point is you cannot visit the lighthouse but can only observe it from a distance. The scenery and rock formations are worth the drive...More

The quintessential New England Lighthouse is right here. Beautifully situated on a little rock island just stone's throw from the mainland. Great rock formations with waves crashing all around you. We spent an hour here just taking in all of the beauty

This would have been a beautiful lighthouse but alas, it was under construction or renovation and the tower itself was all covered up. See picture. Parking here is a challenge. We parked in the Foxy Lobster shack, ate something, then went walking the short distance...More

You cant go out to the island the lighthouse but there are enormous rock outcroppings that you can go out and walk around. Easy climbing if you chose but dont have to. Really pleasant place even on a blustery day to explore. The rain stopped...More

Very pretty setting for a lighthouse. When we arrived they had just finished taking the scaffolding off.

Yes, the scaffolding is still up but it only covers a portion of the site. It’s still worth visiting, but if you like taking lighthouse pictures more artistic than snapshots, then it may not be the best time to visit.
