The lighthouse and Fort Preble are in the same area. The walk out to the lighthouse was very cool, watch your step!! You can not get into the lighthouse but you can get close enough to touch it.

My nieces and nephew (3, 7, 8 & 9) have lots of energy to burn and bringing them here is a good bet. They love climbing the rocks to the light house and let their imaginations run. Best to save this for good weather- rocks...More

Caution to clumsy people like myself!! There is a nice flat looking rock path you can walk on to get out to the lighthouse. I found that very cool and was excited to go out there, however I lost my footing and fell on the...More

Very scenic and pretty lighthouse located at the end of the breakers, you can walk out on the rocks, just be careful if they’re wet. Lighthouse was closed when we were there, but you can see the cruise ships if they are docked in Portland.
