A scenic drive through York and out to the lighthouse. We were there in late October, early evening, and the wind and light were perfect. Interesting to see the small cable car which is the only access to the lighthouse located on a small island.

We stopped enroute from Boston to Portland. The lighthouse is located in a picture perfect small town. There is parking available next to the lighthouse vantage point. Makes for great photos.

I enjoy visiting and re-visiting the Cape Neddick Lighthouse, affectionately known as "The Nubble". Actually, Nubble is a Native-American word that means isthmus, because the lighthouse is located at the end of an isthmus in York, Maine. Always fun to observe people, weather, seagulls. Beautiful...More

This was our second trip to New England and Lighthouses are such a treat. Blue Skies, Blue Water, Relaxing sounds of the waves against the rocky coastline. Plenty of parking and little or no walking required. Great place for pictures!

This is an incredible sight. The lighthouse is on a small island just off the edge of the coast. It looks like you're staring into a calendar or postcard. Some great rocks here to scramble around and use to sit on and take in the...More

I looked around a bit and couldn't find an exact answer to that question. I would think they would come when the sun is down? Just a guess.

Don't think so. Again, you can't actually tour the lighthouse, but the grounds around it are cool too. It's probably a dusk to dawn type hours.

Theres not really a path. There are some benches scattered around, with a dirt/grass area to get to them. There are rocks as well that people sit on. I think a stroller should be fine to get to one of the benches.
