  • Beautiful view of an old, but still working light house. Easy to drive to, gift shop, restrooms, and even a nice restaurant near by.

  • The Nubble Light is simply a picturesque gem on a rocky outcrop just off the Maine coastline. This little side trip is well worth your time if you're passing through southern Maine. The gift shop is a...  more »

  • Nubble is about an hour south of Portland. It's a picturesque small park and good to visit almost any time of year. They have a gift shop in the park and the hours are seasonal. You can't go out to the island but it's a great spot to just sit and enjoy the view.
  • Don't miss it. It's not the most photographed lighthouse for no reason. Day or night. Rain or shine. Stellar.
  • Extremely crowded but overall worth it. Nice people in the gift shop and a local artist outside... amazing!
  • Very busy on holiday weekends, as one would expect, but still able to find parking. Fun spot to check out, take pictures and relax. Well worth the visit; town of York not far away
  • Beautiful view. We were staying in Boston for the weekend and made the day trip just to stop to this light house. It was worth the drive.
