MAINE LIGHTHOUSES You Must See While On Vacation – Video

This page may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure.

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 While On Vacation - Video

Maine Lighthouses You Must See

Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse

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.

Portland Head Light

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.

  1. I can most certainly see why you visited this gorgeous lighthouse and absolutely breathtaking. Thank you for sharing and pinned if we ever get up that way to see, too 😉

    • Janie,

      You live so close to Maine you will have to go visit. We loved it so much we are planning to go back in a couple of years. I am glad you liked the video. It was my first time making a video in years. It took so much time to make since I had forgotten everything and had no clue what I was doing.

      Thank you for all your support!
      Many Blessings,

  2. Oh, Diane, it’s so wonderful to see all this beauty in your video! There are so many incredible sights to see in Maine- thank you for sharing them with us! 🙂

    • Joy,

      Maine was truly amazing! I am glad you liked the video. It was my first time making a video in years. It took so much time to make since I had forgotten everything and had no clue what I was doing. We truly loved Maine so much we are hoping to go back in a few years.
      Thank you so much for your support and stopping by!

  3. Diane I would LOVE to see these in person someday, but for now how cool is this to see it through your pictures and the video! Thanks for putting this up so others can appreciate the beauty God created in this great country. And the magnificent lighthouses have charm along with function. So COOL! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    • Carrie,

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my Maine lighthouses post. We enjoyed this vacation so much. It was truly so different than the south and breathtaking. I am glad you liked the video. It was my first time making a video in years. It took so much time to make since I had forgotten everything and had no clue what I was doing.
      Thanks for all your support.

  4. Totally adding these to my list! Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned to the Bloggers Brags Broad.

  5. Lovely! I have been to a lot of states but sadly, Maine is not one of them. You make it look really inviting, though! Thank you for visiting us at the #HomeMattersParty and sharing these beautiful photos and video!

    • Nicole,

      I have been and lived in most southern states but have only visited a few northern states. Maine was the best vacation ever. The weather was perfect in June and the view and food were amazing! I cannot wait to write about all the other posts about our Maine vacation.
      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment!

  6. So beautiful! Now I want to add Maine to my bucket list! Thanks for sharing at the Merry Monday link party! I hope you’ll link up with us again next week. Sharing your post on Twitter!

  7. My personal favorites would be: 1) Portland Head Light lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth (Portland suburb) 2) Bug Light in South Portland (another Portland suburb — just because it’s so cute) 3) Pemaquid Lighthouse down the peninsula in Pemaquid 4) Rockland Breakwater lighthouse in Rockland (because of the adventure of getting out the breakwater to get to it).
