If you are driving alone the Maine coast, it is a good spot to visit. We were there this week and it is beautiful and scenic. There is parking to view the light house across the water. You can not get to the the lighthouse as it sits on an island.

This was a beautiful light house and walk. Spring and Summer are a great time to go. This is one of the most photographed lighthouses and they have a nice gift shop. There is also a restaurant with amazing views of the ocean.

I've seen beautiful lighthouses from Hawaii to Ireland, from Florida to Prince Edward Island, but this one is perhaps the most iconic of them all. Absolutely stunningly!

Traveled to Nubble Lighthouse and a very windy, cloudy, rainy day and it was still spectacular. Had a wonderful time

But then again, postcards are a rarity; few send them anymore. Be sure to visit this light and take your time breathing in the sea air and photographing this scene. Then later, every time your see your photo you will feel the exhilaration.

This was the highlight of our vacation this past week. You can not het over to the lighthouse, but the view from the cliff across from it is stunning. Do not miss this if you are in the York area!

Be sure to stop here for a classic Maine scene and photo op...went here in the fall and it was busy, so the summer months must be insane!

What a beautiful place to visit and smell the ocean while watching the waves crash against the rocks. We even saw a man swimming out on his surf board in November. You would have to be in good physical shape in order to climb the rocks to get to the lighthouse but what a beautiful view from the parking lot
