These 11 Historic Lighthouses In Maine Are Simply Incredible To See

Many of the articles I write here aim to tell you about the parts of Maine you may not be familiar with. Secret waterfalls, under-the-radar diners and strange places are just a few topics we’ve covered. But, there’s no reason to ignore the things we’re known for. Specifically, our lighthouses. To us, they feel like home. To those from away, they feel like a reminder of a summer vacation. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a trip up our coast to visit some of our most notable lights. Here are some of our favorites, from south to north.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
