Maine has some of the largest and busiest ports on the East Coast. Its fierce waters and treacherous rocks are guarded by a host of lighthouses. The lighthouses vary in style. During Maine Open Lighthouse Day on Sept 11, explore onshore and offshore exotic lighthouses. Some lighthouse towers will be open for climbing.
Maine has 65 lighthouses. Portland Head Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in the state. There are lighthouses of all designs from concrete, steel, caisson and one that has Corinthian columns.
