  • Wonderful and rocky coast. We were blown away at God’s majesty. A lot of people were there but room to roam, kids loved it. The waves and the lighthouse were wonderful.  more »

  • Beautiful lighthouse. One of the most popular throughout New England. Plenty of parking if you get there early during peak season, which is also free. The Nubble is on an island, so therefore is not accessible. However the photos from the rocks are great to even spectacular if you take your time to find the right spot.
  • Absolutely beautiful & well kept lighthouse. Lovely & reasonable priced gift shop. We were fortunate to be able to purchase a watercolor of the lighthouse for only $10, the artist was there raising money for the lighthouse and personalized the little skiff with whatever name you wished. Great day. Oh, we were so lucky there was hundreds of small butterflies on a beautiful bush of Daisies.
