This photo shows the entrance road to the Nubble Lighthouse. The road goes in a circle, and has parking in a perfect area to view the lighthouse.

This photo was taken at low tide, and shows how a person "could" walk across to the lighthouse even though the rocks with moss would be slippery. Of course, the walk across is prohibited.

Cape Neddick Lighthouse is also called "Nubble Light", and it is one of the most photographed lighthouses in Maine. It is located near the old colonial town of York, Maine, on a berren island long known to local fishermen as the "Nubble". The white painted conical forty foot tower is made up of two layers of brick and reinforced with a covering of wrap around steel plates. The tower is 13 feet in diameter and the base floor is solid brick. The light was first illuminated in 1879, and later automated in 1987. The red beacon light gives visibility to approximately 13 to 14 miles in clear weather.

Pictures of Nubble Light have traveled all over the world and even beyond. At the present time a photo of this famous lighthouse is traveling somewhere in space. NASA selected this Lighthouse as one of 117 different photographs, depicting life on earth, to travel aboard Voyager II which was launched into space in 1977.

Personally, I find that Nubble Light looks as though it is a scene from a Disney movie--it's so "picture perfect". At Christmas time, the lighthouse tower, and all the buildings are lit up with Christmas lights. It's my dream to one day get to see Nubble during the Christmas season. One day.....

***Directions: From U.S. Highway 1, take Route 1A into York Beach. Turn right and follow Nubble Road to Nubble Point.
