Although the fog was rolling in when we visited this is the typical New England image of a lighthouse. A private parking lot makes it easy and there is a gift shop for the tourists

Sunny skies and light winds completed our stay and Nubble Lighthouse. The beautiful surf and clear view of the great horizon were super extras. Parking is tight. However, wait a few minutes and someone will be leaving.

Don't think so. Again, you can't actually tour the lighthouse, but the grounds around it are cool too. It's probably a dusk to dawn type hours.

Theres not really a path. There are some benches scattered around, with a dirt/grass area to get to them. There are rocks as well that people sit on. I think a stroller should be fine to get to one of the benches.
