Picture this: It’s a beautiful day and you’ve got guests in town! So, naturally, it’s summer because nobody’s got visitors during a Maine winter. But, that’s not the point. You’ve got a full day planned, including coffee, lighthouses, a new restaurant and a few stops for photos in between. It’s a full day, so you’ve got to stay on schedule. The only problem with that? There’s a good chance you might miss some of the best that Maine has to offer! Today, we’re talking about the visiting the strange ruins in Maine that can be found if you veer just slightly off-the-beaten-path at the Portland Head Light.

To take the short hike that leads to the Goddard Mansion after visiting the lighthouse, take the trail headed North that begins just nearby. You’ll find the mansion once you’ve completed the cliff walk. Simply continue past the Ship Cove beach area after the Battery Hobart and you’re there!
