the Sohier Park is very small park along the Coast of York in Maine but is one of the most visited in Maine due to it's unique location as the stepping stone to post card perfect views of the Cape Neddick and the Nubble Light House and Panoramic Views of the Long Beach area of York Town. The park also provides free parking year-round, benches,...more
The Nubble Light House has one rich history in the Maine Coast (which has a reputation for historic lighthouses numbering about 60 dotting it's coasts) but at present is not accesible to visitors. The Nubble light House is a major stop for people who go on a tour of Maine in General and southern main in Particular. The best place to view the...more
While viewing Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse and Sohier Park, you can also enjoy eating with that wonderful view on the Only Restaurant in the Area which is Fox's Lobster House. The Place is not open all year round but only during the end of April through the end of October. The place was founded by enterpreneurs Frank and Annie Coupe from Methuen, Massachusetts They built a small, rustic lobster pound with an inside dining room that seated 40 people and also owned the nearby Gift Shop.
Favorite Dish: Maine is known for it's excellent sea food in general and it's world famous lobsters in general so you can order the sea foods and lobsters here while viewing the Light House. The Menu Varies but I've ordered a lobster bisque pint which costs $ 7.95 a bowl.

The Sohier Park Welcome Center at Cape Neddick Light Station, better known as Nubble Light, was built in 1991. The building includes separate rest rooms for men and women on either side of a 12-by-12-foot gift shop. Although the shop is small, inside is packed with tons of souvenir items for hordes of tourists during summer and early fall and I might consider these as part of the tourist traps hehehehe.
What to buy: assorted souvenirs like my favorite refrigerator magnets that costs $ 4.99 to $ 7.99, assorted shot glasses lfrom $ 2.99 to $ 6.99, nubble light port cards, keychains, sweat shirts, wind breakers and more.
What to pay: depends on what you buy but they are generally cheap
Shameless product placement has long been an evil of television and movies. I'm sad to report that the State of Maine is hopping on the Subliminal Advertisement bus. I often wondered why so many tourists gawk at Nubble Light as if it were Jesus descending from the clouds. Then I watched this video in slow motion and when I paused it just right, THERE IT WAS! For about a split second you can see the image of a coke can! Despicable! Can we sink no lower!?!
Nothing screams New World Order like a flaming red coke can on a lighthouse!
Red = Power, Power = Government, Government = the elite, the elite = illuminati, illuminati = in league with Satan.
another favorite collector item of mine. I get to choose on a variety of Shot glasses here since the shot glasses are another of my favorite collector fetishes when going to a place and since , I must buy several never mind the price (I'm not a cheapskate hehehe). You can buy shot glasses here at only one place, at the Sohier Gift Shop and are...more

Favorite thing: You can't tell from these pictures, but the waves were the wildest I've ever seen them during this rain storm. What is clear from these pictures is how windy it was. The force of the wind and the frigid, stinging rain drops prevented us from staying here any longer than it took to take these photographs. Ahhh, New England weather.
