This was a very pretty lighthouse, in a scenic location.

Worth a drive to get your picture taken by the sign saying that it's the East-most point of the USA.

We went to Lubec for the purpose of seeing the eastern most point, so we were excited. If that is not a big deal for someone, it could be disappointing, I guess because it is around 2 and1/2 hours from Bar Harbor area. There are trails you can walk in addition to the lighthouse, and you are very close to Campabello.

If you are in Lubec this is a must. Not far from town, we biked there. This is one of the places you need to be able to say "I was there." Staff was friendly and provided insight in to the history. The trails near the lighthouse also provided close encounters to the forest of the coast. Very short walk and you get the feeling quickly that you in a bog. We went out there actually three times since with the changing weather things looked very different. Fog, clear, rain. Have a great time. Get out and explore.

Having spent about a week in the Lubec area we were swamped in by fog most of the time and only found the sun shinning for about two hours one evening. So we took many photographs of the lighthouse in the fog and video with the fog horn sounding every few seconds which added to the mystic seaside drama. Then, with the sun out, we got some super "quintessential" lighthouse photos. Great Sight!

Maine's West Quoddy Head Light is actually east of West Quoddy Head Light in NB. There is a marker between the light and an adjacent building that marks the Easternmost Point in the US 48 states.
