Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor make a fabulous off the beaten path adventure. In this area, time stands still. Follow the road to the end of the peninsula and you will be rewarded with the small, but charming Marshall Point Light. Forrest Gump ran here...More

Blustery day with the waves running strongly into the shore makes this lighthouse more atmospheric and interesting. Quite chilly walking the shore and the seabirds wheeling and diving into the breakers add to the scene.

The small museum is near a somewhat isolated 159-year-old lighthouse, which makes it less crowded with tourists, especially in the spring and late fall. The museum itself is dependent on donations, with very nice people working there, who will answer your questions. The historical exhibits...More

Love visiting all the light houses in the area..they always seem to offer a good view and photo op. Not much to do here except to stop and enjoy the scenery. Nice little addition to our trip.

We had a great time riding out to this Lighthouse. It's definitely a drive off the main highway especially with the "detour" due to road work. It was still definitely worth going. Picturesque scenery along the way and once you get out there the views...More

Be prepared for a long drive to the lighthouse as it is quite a distance from Highway #1 whether you are coming from the North or South. You do get to see some scenic rural areas that are especially picturesque with fall foliage and old...More

Forty-five minute drive from the main highway. The lighthouse itself is the smallest I've seen. Unfortunately there was work being done on it when we were there and the museum had closed. Beautiful coastal view. The outhouses were filthy, worst I've seen. Sorry to say...More

Yes, this is the same lighthouse that was featured in Forest Gump, but that is not why we went to visit. I love visiting the lighthouses along the New England coast and this was one of our favorites. It is hard to get a good...More

Iconic Maine lighthouse with wonderful views and lovely museum. Go into the back room and look at the notebooks that chronicle all sorts of local events over the years.

Very nice views of the light house. Small museum which operates on donations. Very limited parking at end of a single track road. This is the lighthouse that Forrest Gump was running to in the film.
