Went to the Nubble Lighthouse with family members who been there before. It was absolutely beautiful. A very nice place to look and take pictures of. The way the ocean waves crash upon the rocks just a very nice to see.

Wife and I visited today on our anniversary with our pet corgi. Beautiful scenery. Just what you imagine when you hear "Maine". Lighthouse is not accessible to the public but plenty of places to photograph it and to take it in. A small visitor center/gift shop is next door. Plenty of items to purchase to remember your visit.

We have visited the Nubble light house a number of times and have never been disappointed. Your regardless of the weather it is always a neat place to visit with family and friends. On a nice sunny day you can sit on the benches and just enjoy the tides. Worth the trip

Don't miss sight if you are near the Southern tip of Maine. Incredible view, interesting history. Worth it!

Do not miss this lighthouse and it is worth going out of your way if you are anywhere close by. This is one of our favorite places to visit. The view is incredible and very peaceful. It would be wonderful to be able to paint this beautiful scene. Take a beach chair and just enjoy the scenery. Fox's Lobster House... More

I would recommend a stop at this scenic and wonderful lighthouse. a gift shop, restaurant are both on grounds. My thanks to volunteer Bob, who not only took some family photos of us, but gave me quite an education on the lighthouse. We went in the morning, and it wasn't crowded at all.

This lighthouse and the overall view is beautiful! It was so relaxing to sit on the rocks and watch the gentle waves roll in, admire the coastal views, and overall atmosphere. The park is small so there may be a lot of people crammed into a small space. There is limited free parking available. There is a small gift shop... More

We drove there for the light house but the road along the York, Maine shore is picturesque as well. A real beach town though not as many bikinis as we see in California.
