It’s no surprise that Maine’s rocky coastline makes for a beautiful view. Yahoo Travel has published a list of the 13 most beautiful lighthouses in America, and three of them are in Bowdoin’s Maine backyard — in Portland, in York and on Mount Desert Island. Take a look at Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, The Cape Neddick Lighthouse, Portland Head Light and ten other iconic lighthouses.


  1. Al DeMoya, '72 says:

    As far as I am concerned the coast of Maine is the real New England and nothing says Maine to me more than its beautiful lighthouses.
