The light house was under restoration and I am sure is awesome up close and personal. Would return again to the area to see it again.

Been here many time and it never gets old. This is a beautifully preserved lighthouse on a unique little island off the coast of southeastern Maine. Christmas is a great time to enjoy the Christmas lights, but any time is good!

A must see while in the area and the best time to go is during the winter where you can get close . Listen to the ocean break on the rocks and take it all in.

The Cape Neddick Nubble light is one of the most photographed Lights in the world, for good reason. It is the essence of New England coastline and has stood as a rock for centuries. Visiting there is a trip back in time.

You cannot get very close to the lighthouse and the parking lot was crowded in January but it was worth the picture worthy view!

The lighthouse was close enough that no binoculars were needed and the view of the ocean was beautiful.

As beautiful and picturesque in winter as it was in summer. We were there with our FL grandson as a graduation gift. He loved the cold, snow, waves and view.

Yes, the scaffolding is still up but it only covers a portion of the site. It’s still worth visiting, but if you like taking lighthouse pictures more artistic than snapshots, then it may not be the best time to visit.
