Maine's Open Lighthouse Day is Sept 15, 2012!
|West Quoddy Light|
A spectacular event in September- Maine Lighthouse Day will offer unprecedented access to 25 of the lighthouses that dot the Maine coast. Many of Maine's lighthouses are an easy drive and walk, some are accessible only via boat (many tour companies offer cruises to the lighthouses) and others can be seen from a variety of local beaches. An excellent selection of Maine's iconic symbol will be open for tours!
Make plans to see as many as you can for this one day: September 15, 2012!
To view the list of lighthouses, accessibility info as well as a brief history of the lighthouses, visit the Maine Office of Tourism's special lighthouse page.
An integral part of Maine's seafaring history, the lighthouse is a cultural icon pointing the way home in the worst of weather to Maine's rocky coastline. The lighthouse is a beacon in the fog for the homeward bound sailor and a welcome symbol of family and friends awaiting their return. This is a fantastic opportunity you won't want to miss to see some of the most enduring and visible Maine icons!
