Maine's oldest lighthouse - and one of the most picturesque and most frequently photographed in the U.S. - has been in operation since 1791. Although it is closed to the public, you can stop by the adjacent museum, enjoy the grounds which include a beach, lawns and picnic areas and view boats entering and leaving the harbor.
If you only have time to visit one lighthouse, make it Portland Head Light. It is iconic New England, perfected situated on a rocky bluff above the thundering Atlantic. It was commissioned by George Washington. Try to visit early in the morning or early in the evening to enjoy the full play of light. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the view.

The Spring Point Ledge Light is accessed through the Southern Maine Community College which is located on the old Fort Preble. We drove through the college campus to the shore. Parking was extremely limited and mostly by permit. It was a wet and wild day and we not able to walk out to the lighthouse and could only view it from the shore. I didn’t see any visitor center at this location.

This popular beach is also known for surfing.
We came here on the off-season for a conference, and my children wanted to go to the beach. Higgins Beach has on-street parking to the side, better in the offseason. The beach is best visited at low tide, as shells and even sand dollars are able to be found. In October, the water is chilly, so don't plan to go swimming. My girls found sand dollars, which made them very happy.

Walk along the cliffs, have a quiet picnic or fly a kite at this scenic seaside park.
An extremely interesting historical park. The lighthouse is very picturesque. The old fort buildings are extremely interesting and scenic. We were fortunate to visit on a mild day in February. The sun was shining and we got a first hand glimpse of the rugged Maine coast. We are from Oregon so it was nice to compare.

We stopped at the Bug Light visitor center on their last weekday of the season. We had our Lighthouse Passports signed and proceeded out to a parking area. The visitor center did not have a public restroom, but there were several sets of outhouses visible but not useable. The Bug Light is a short distance from the Spring Point Ledge Light.

Boosts 41-acres of rocky headlands. That is for sure. While we didn't do much hiking in the area, it sure was rocky. From the edge you can see the typical Maine coast. Due to a recent storm the surf was high and crashing against the rocks below. Perfect pictures. You can see Casco Bay and the open Atlantic from your vantage point.

Unusual lighthouse designed after Greek monuments.
I was told prior to going to the light house that I could definitely get inside. That didn't happen. After walking all the way out there I was quite disappointed to find that all I could do is look at the outside and the water. Being afraid of heights and bad feet the walk out there was NOT worth it.

Come enjoy family friendly entertainment at an affordable price and see future Major League All-Stars. Former Sea Dogs players include Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Jon Lester, Dustin Pedroia, Anthony Rizzo, and many more.
We had a group outing to the park over the summer. The park in just the right size, easy parking, inexpensive tickets and good viewing from anywhere in the park. We had a great time. This is a great place to bring the whole family without breaking the bank. Food is a little picey, but it is to be expected at a ballpark. However, leave your water bottles and food at home, they will confiscate them at security screening. All in all, a great time!

Bathe in the surf of one of Maines finest beaches.
My kids loved this beach. Not crowded. Nice views. Available bathrooms. Just have to pay to get into the state park if non-Maine resident

Ship traffic here runs the gamut from lobster boats to oil tankers and cruise lines; also look for the many photogenic lighthouses.
The Casco bay is a very special place. Deep blue waters and a great many islands, many inhabited and worthy of your exploration. The crew are nice enough and help with your questions. There are numerous selections on the ferry schedule to choose one that fits your day schedule. Toilets on board. take some beer/wine with you to drink and enjoy. Excellent job.
