The Cape Neddick Lighthouse is located on Nubble Island. Cape Neddick Point is at the north end of Long Sands Beach in the village of York Beach. The lighthouse is not opened for tourists, which is pity as the lighthouse and island look great.The lighthouse was put in use in 1879

Tawas Point Lighthouse was built in 1876 and it is located at Tawas Point State Park, overlooking Lake Huron. Still in service, this lighthouse contains a Fourth Order Fresnel Lens and has been extensively restored. Tawas Point is also great place for birdwatchers, should visit it one day
