Of All The Lighthouses In Maine You Might Be Surprised That This Lesser-Known One Is The Tallest

In a state with more coastline than California (true story!) it should come as no surprise that where the land meets the sea there are tons of lighthouses. Many of them are captured in photographs and sold all over the world as the perfect example of the quintessential New England scene. While we love to visit them, quite a few fly under the radar. This one, the tallest lighthouse in Maine, has a pretty interesting history.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

It’s fun to see these lights in photos, but it’s even more fun to go see them in person! To see some of our favorites consider taking the lighthouse road trip on the Maine coast that’s dreamily beautiful.
