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
This is one of the most photographed lighthouses in THE WORLD! Seriously it’s on a island you can’t get to but the parking lot across from it is close and there is some wicked Ice Cream right up the street. See both. You won’t regret...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

Really pleasant place even on a blustery day to explore. The rain stopped...More
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.
I was there in mid October - there were several people. but admittedly, the winds keep the people 'moving' - as a photographer, I probably spent more time there than your general lighthouse tourist type. The weather here is... More
I was there in mid October - there were several people. but admittedly, the winds keep the people 'moving' - as a photographer, I probably spent more time there than your general lighthouse tourist type. The weather here is distinctively different than even 15 minutes further inland. It would be an awesome spot for a quick ceremony & photos!
