Great photo spot

This lighthouse is part of our New England tour (we get lots of visitors!) Love to watch the water crash on the rocks. The visitor center is very nice (clean restrooms!)

Awesome day! Loved visiting the lighthouse and exploring on the rocks. My husband dove there years ago and was delighted to see divers still there!

One of the most famous lighthouses in the United States. Fun to take photos there at anytime of day, but sunrise and sunset are especially beautiful. Be a careful driver when parking because parking spots overlook the sea and adjacent rocks. Cute little gift shop and wonderful restaurant near it. Definitely experience Christmas in July once in your life when... More

As someone who lives near the Oregon coast, I've seen lots of beautiful lighthouses but the Nubble seems to be the one that represents the apex of lighthousedom. I went there twice during my Maine trip and was quite impressed with the way the light changed the feeling of the lighthouse. For all lighthouse buffs, this is the one to... More

If you are travelling in the York area, you have to see the Lighthouse. It is beautiful! Better yet check it our from a boat tour. The light house is so "New England"

The view of the Nubble Lighthouse and surrounding ocean is beautiful. You cannot actually visit the lighthouse but it's a great place to take photos and enjoy the scenery. There is parking, a visitor center with bathrooms, and an outdoor takeout restaurant right there as well. Fun spot to check out.

My daughter and her fiance were having their photos taken at Nubble Lighthouse. This beautiful lighthouse is one of the most photographed in world/country? and this is where he proposed. There is ALWAYS a crowd and parking can be a mess- but it is definitely worth the wait.

It's on an island, so you need to admire from shore. But it's close, and beautiful to admire & take photos of. Kids love to climb around the rocks. Restrooms on site are clean. Gift shop has some cute items. Dunnes ice cream around the corner is highly recommended.

What a great place to visit and enjoy the Nubble! Shop at the store for all Cape Neddick stuff - prices not bad. Walk around and see 180 degrees of the park
