Maine was one of the best vacations ever! We saw stunning lighthouses with breathtaking views which was a big part of why we enjoy Maine so much.
Please take the time to watch my video and see for yourself why we loved our Maine vacation.
Why did we Visit Maine? I have always dreamed of visiting Maine. Fresh lobster, gorgeous lighthouses, beautiful ocean views, fresh blueberry pie, and yummy whoopie pies were in my dreams of Maine. Maine did not disappoint me. It was better than I imagined. My bucket list to one day visit had always included Maine, but now it is on my bucket list to revisit one day. That is how much we loved every minute of our vacation.

Maine Lighthouses You Must See
Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is simply magnificent and just a short drive from downtown Portland. On certain days, you can take a tour of the inside of the lighthouse. Sadly to say, we missed this opportunity. Be sure to check the schedule for when the lighthouse will be open for tours. The lighthouse itself is located at the end of a 900 feet granite rock water break. There are paved walkways with benches and a small beach in the area as well. The walk out to the light on the boulders was breathtaking and oh so well worth the short walk.
We also saw Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse on a lighthouse boat tour from downtown Portland. It was a beautiful site from Casco Bay. I will blog about the lighthouse boat tour soon.
Cape Neddick “Nubble” Lighthouse
As you enter Sohier Park from Nubble Rd, you will immediately see Nubble Lighthouse sitting on top of a large rock island a few hundred feet off shore. You can get great pictures of Nubble Lighthouse from Sohier Park. It was built in 1879. You will be walking on huge beautiful rocks for the best view and pictures so bring your tennis shoes when checking out the fantastic views of the Nubble Lighthouse.
Cape Elizabeth is the home of Portland Head Light; this lighthouse was built in 1791. It is just a short drive from Portland and so worth the trip. It is beautiful with spectacular views. You can spend the day in the park located in front of Portland Head Light. It is a stunning ninety-acre park called Fort Williams Park. We enjoyed a picnic with their facilities. You can hike or check out the historic fort structures, or simply lay down on the plush green grass and watch the ocean. Enjoy Portland Head Light and all Fort Williams Park has to offer.
