Cape Elizabeth in Northern Maine is a beautiful coastal town best known for its craggy shores, bays, and miles of sandy beaches. It's also home to several historic lighthouses. It's a great summer vacation destination, and the population swells in the summertime.
Some of the best things to do when visiting Cape Elizabeth include exploring the area’s picturesque lighthouses. Begin by seeing the lighthouse at Two Lights State Park, which was originally constructed in 1928. It offers stunning views of the open ocean. Next, you are going to want to head over to nearby Fort Williams Park and climb into the tower of Maine’s oldest lighthouse, Portland Head Light. The view is equally stunning.
While in Cape Elizabeth, you can also spend an afternoon canoeing and bird-watching at the secluded Great Pond. If it's hiking you're after, head to Robinson Woods, which is an 82-acre preserve home to ancient trees.
Maine is known for some of the best Seafood and Cape Elizabeth is home to a selection of excellent restaurants. Rudy’s of the Cape is a favorite amongst locals. If you're not just interested in eating seafood, head on a 90-minute Lucky Catch boat cruise where you can learn about the process of catching lobster. You can even try your hand at catching your own, and once you are back on dry land you can bring it to the Portland Lobster Company, where they'll prepare and cook it for you.
