Beautiful!!

We drove from DOT, MA (1.5 hours) to get to Nubble Lighthouse. Very picturesque. We parked across the street from Fox's Lobster cafe. No climbing needed.

Great little detour on our New England trip. Beautiful little lighthouse. Easy access. No significant climbing. Great place for photos. Cannot access lighthouse, but definitely worth the side trip.

The view is incredible. We got there when there was a lot of fog which only added to the mystic of the picture we were able to get.

This is a lovely lighthouse with lots of benches around so you can sit and soak up the sun for a while. Also saw some bringing their own chairs and umbrellas for an afternoon stay and maybe painting session. Bring your camera, you'll love the view. Rocky coasts and breaking waves all around. Pretty red shed in the foreground adding... More

We arrived late in the afternoon and were afraid we wouldn't find the lighthouse before sunset, but we found it - and a parking spot - easily. And we weren't alone ! The lighthouse is a popular attraction because of it's location, photo op, and beauty. Although there were many people around, there was plenty of room to sit, relax,... More

I love to take friends and company to visit here. It is a beautiful place, in the Sunshine - in the foggy misty mornings, and at Christmas when it is decorated with lights.

This is a beautiful lighthouse in a spectacular setting. There are benches to sit on and just look at the scenery. There is one restaurant nearby and a gift shop. The drive to the lighthouse is very scenic as well. You can't go into the lighthouse so there isn't much more to do than to take a look and drive... More

This is a lovely place to spend a few minutes or a few hours. The view is unmatched and brings about wild imaginings about long ago life in New England. Lots of places to sit, whether it be on benches or the rocky bluff. Bring a sweater on cooler days as the winds can come up rather unexpectedly. This is... More
