A short hike to the lighthouse and you'll think you were in a Virginia Woolf novel. Can't be beat for New England quaint. Go inside and you'll find a room of your own.

Went to the Two Lights State Park and found that the lighthouses were not actually there. Found my way here and the Lighthouse is up above where the parking area is. The small beach down below the Lighthouse was my favorite spot. Take a seat...More

Nice little park to hike around with gift shop, concession stand, and food truck called Bite of Maine with awesome lobster rolls! Great for taking pics. Dogs were welcome on leashes. Loads of kids running around.
