Quoddy Head State Park
Quoddy Head State Park is home to one of the most iconic lighthouses in Maine to visit! West Quoddy Head Light is Maine’s (and the United States’) easternmost lighthouse. Your views will look out over Quoddy Channel – dividing Canada and the States) and see the beautiful red cliffs of Grand Manan Island over in New Brunswick.
And speaking of views, Quoddy Head State Park is perfect for wildlife watching from whales to birding opportunities. Summertime whale watchers might see humpback, minke and finback whales, and birds from Purple Sandpipers to Ruddy Turnstones can be seen as well. Of course, migration seasons will afford all new species to observe!
Maine is home to more than 60 historical lighthouses, all unique and with beautiful photo opportunities. You can learn more about their locations here, and plan a beautiful and scenic driving tour through this gorgeous state, stopping at small RV parks, larger state parks, or even a quick overnight at a Walmart parking lot before heading out again the next morning! Maine is a truly gorgeous state, especially in the summer, and a summer lighthouse tour is a perfect, relaxing late summer vacation for you to enjoy.
