Maine Open Lighthouse Day 2012 & 2013

Posted by Jody on August 24, 2012

Update: The fifth annual Maine Open Lighthouse Day will occur on 9/14/13!

So many folks who love heading to the beach also enjoy visiting lighthouses.  We like to search out nearby lighthouses when we travel to the coast.  It’s especially fun when you get to actually take a tour of the lighthouse, too!  Whether your tour is self-guided, headed by a park employee, or led by a friendly volunteer, a trip to one of these coastal treasures is a surefire way to learn about the history of the area.  It’s a bit of a climb to get to the lantern room on top of the tower, but the rewards are well worth the effort because you’re then treated to amazing views of the the vast ocean/river/lake, the often rugged coastline and the beautiful beaches stretched out below.

4th Annual Maine Open Lighthouse Day

Saturday, September 15, 2012

For lighthouse enthusiasts, September 15th is the date to circle on the calendar!  The State of Maine, the United States Coast Guard, and the non-profit American Lighthouse Foundation are all teaming up to “increase awareness of Maine’s maritime heritage and the rich history of its lighthouses and lighthouse keepers” in the fourth annual Maine Open Lighthouse Day.

Twenty four historic lighthouses and the Maine Lighthouse Museum are listed by as participants  for the  Maine Open Lighthouse Day. Which beacons will you climb?

 Lace up your sturdy shoes! This is going to be fun!

  1. Looks like fun! Wish I was in Maine…

  2. A great post Jody and although I’ve photographed lighthouses in Maine these are two that I missed. Thanks so much for telling me about them.
