Cape Elizabeth

We took a trip to Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  We stayed in Portland, Maine and took a drive to Cape Elizabeth. It was beautiful.

We went to the Portland Head Lighthouse. It was amazing. You’re able to walk around the area and explore for free. There is a museum there that is attached to the lighthouse and there’s a small charge for it. We didn’t do it because our son would not handle it.  We were able to walk around and look at the lighthouse in different views.   After exploring the lighthouse, we went for a walk.

The walk was around the around the area, around the lighthouse. You were able to get a wonderful view of the lighthouse and the cliffs. I’ve read that the lighthouse is one of the most photographed in the world and I have to be honest it should be. It was simply amazing to see. I really enjoyed taking in the view and how amazing it looked.  See the photo below.

After the lighthouse, we went to the cliff walk. This was a nice walk around the area to see all the scenes around the lighthouse and Fort Williams Park.  We walked and of course took lots of pictures with the beautiful scenes.  It was relaxing and breathe taking. Our friends went down to climb the rocks. We didn’t because of our son and the fact that I’m 7 months pregnant so it was not possible for me.  See the photo below of some of the things that we saw.

 

After the cliff walk, we walked over to to Fort Williams Park.  It’s an abandon Fort that we were able to talk and explore ourselves. We walked up the stairs and were able to see the beautiful views from there. It was simply beautiful.  I love to travel to coastal places because the views are amazing and beautiful. I hope this inspires you to travel and see the beautiful views of Cape Elizabeth. Happy travels.
