Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse Tours

Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse
There’s a certain romance to wind-whipped lighthouses set out off a rocky coast, and the Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse in York Bay is arguably the most romantic of them all. Believed to be America’s most photographed lighthouse, the Cape Neddick Nubble even had its picture delivered all the way to space, when Voyager II in 1997 sent a photo fluttering out into space to represent the American Lighthouse. Today, Cape Neddick Nubble lighthouse is an iconic sight along Maine’s spectacular southern coast, and has warned passing ships of the nearby rocks since 1879. At Christmas time, the town of York lights the house itself with bright and festive lights, which shine in brilliant, stoic contrast to the inky black backdrop of night. In summer months, when coastal Maine is teeming with beachgoers, sailors, sightseers, and tourists, thousands flock to Sohier Park across the strait from the island, simply to photograph and experience in real life the iconic American spire.

Practical Info

There is free parking in Sohier Park where you’ll find panoramic views of the lighthouse, which itself is set on Nubble Island about 100 yards off the coast. In 1985, the Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places, and the lighthouse is lit for the holiday season on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Address: Sohier Park, York Beach, Maine 03909, USA
