Sunset casts a rosy glow over Cape Neddick's Nubble Light, perched on a small, rocky island a few hundred feet from the shore of York, Maine, a town beloved by locals and tourists alike for its wide, sandy beaches and historic architecture. Since 1879, this beacon has guided sailors to safe harbor with its flashing red light and mournful foghorn. Fully automated in 1987, the lighthouse and keeper's cottage are off-limits to visitors, but the best views are from York's Sohier Park, just across the narrow channel. A quintessential symbol of the New England shore, Nubble remains one of the most photographed lighthouses in the nation and a festive vision during the holidays, when the keeper's cottage and red shed are dressed in evergreen wreaths.
