Nubble Lighthouse at Cape Neddick, Maine, majestically stands as one of New England's great lighthouses -- noteworthy, as many lighthouses in the region exemplify true coastal architectural beauty. Perhaps it's just one of those "you just have to be there" situations, but in our attempt to best describe, Nubble Light is wonderfully maintained and perfectly situated with stunning, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The "Down east" salt-sea air, the renowned rocky Maine coast, the small Sohier Park with true "wide screen" views, and adjacent Fox's Lobster House restaurant -- with lobster, an ice cream stand (with amazing wild Maine blueberry ice cream) and picnic benches, help make this area a "must-visit" destination during your New England travels.
We love visiting Nubble Lighthouse during the summer for its refreshing breezes, the fall for some peace and quiet from tourists, the winter when Nubble Lighthouse has its own holiday lighting ceremony during Christmas, and the spring for a reminder of what New England is like after a long hibernation. Whatever time of the year, Nubble Lighthouse is a beautiful place to revel in the amazing scenery of Maine. Additionally, Nubble Lighthouse is located within the "Yorks" in Maine -- beaches like Short Sands Beach, Long Sands Beach, the shops, restaurants and amusements at York Beach and the more quaint leanings of York Harbor and York Village make this area one of our favorite travel destinations in New England. There's simply something for everyone here!
We'd love to read your posts here about your reflections on Nubble Light.
