• Pemaquid Point, Maine: Pemaquid Lighthouse

      One of more than 60 lighthouses along the Maine Coast, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is one of the more photogenic. Accessible 14.5 miles south of Damariscotta on Route 130, the lighthouse originally went into service in 1827. The point, at the entrance to Muscongus Bay to the east and Johns Bay to the west, had been the scene of many shipwrecks before the lighthouse was built.

      If you go:
      There is a small fee to park. Tower and museum tours are free but donations are appreciated. For geocachers, there are a couple of caches on the grounds. Volunteers open the lighthouse to the public from Memorial Day to Columbus Day from 10:30 to 5. There is a museum in the keeper's house.
