Despite the rainy day, we stopped at the Nobska Lighthouse recently. The views are wonderful and the lighthouse is impressive. We were not there when it was open. There is free parking available very near the lighthouse. It was easy to locate, too.

This is a beautiful Lighthouse. I am happy that the grounds are open to the public. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Very pristine, overlooking the ocean. You can park in the small lot, take some pics and enjoy all the beauty you are surrounded by.

We came around a corner to a magnificent view of the Atlantic and a beautiful New England lighthouse and keepers cottage with its history laid out for us.

This is a neat place with a serene view of the bay. If you like photography, you'll spend an entire afternoon taking advantage of this site.

We were on a mission to see lots of lighthouses on our visit and made sure to seek this one out. It's a private residence so you can't go in it, but it is beautiful and in a beautiful location.

This is one of the nicest lighthouses on Cape Cod - and the views are breathtaking. The drive out from Wells is also quite nice - and short. Be aware there is not that much parking (compared to other Cape Cod lighthouses), but it is...More

I didn't notice the trolley. Most people ride their bikes up there. My husband and I walked there and back from the Woods Hole Inn. The weather was nice, so we made the most of it. You can drive to the lighthouse, but there... More
