  • Ok. I admit that I love lighthouses and this is one of my favorites. Built in 1879, it is on a little island off the coast and is an American icon. The Voyager spacecraft carries a photo of this light...  more »

  • Spectacular views. Peaceful and beautiful. Perfect photography opportunities abound. Open year round. Small gift shop. Plenty of parking (we went in April 2018) should you plan a visit. Definitely add this to your must see list if your planning a visit to York, Maine.
  • I've been visiting this lighthouse ever since I was a child. It's been a place that I hold near and dear to me. Being a resident of Maine, we are blessed with some beautiful lighthouses. Even though you have to see it from afar, the Nub always manages to capture the imagination, put one's soul at ease, and allows you to drink in the natural splendor of the ocean. It's a hassle dealing with all the tourists in the summertime but no matter the season, it's still worth going.
  • Great place to visit during the day and also at night, great way to get sometime to yourself to think and clear your head. It''s also a great place to bring someone special with you due to it having a romantic feeling to it
  • Wonderful experience. Beautiful views and serene place to visit. Delightful in the summer to go down on the rocks and see the ocean up close or to stay up on the parking lot and watch the lighthouse or the coastline or the ocean. Also beautiful and breathtakingly in winter during a storm.
  • A beautiful view. It's peaceful there. you can smell the fresh ocean breeze. there are restrooms and a gift shop. right down the road there is a snack bar.
