Visit the second tallest lighthouse in Maine.

Mohegan Lighthouse is one of the main attractions on Monhegan Island. Visitors will need to take a moderate hike up the hill from the boat wharf, which takes about 15 minutes. Monhegan means "Island by the Sea," and the island was named by the local Native Americans before the lighthouse was built. Keep an eye out for various rock towers around the village as you explore this island.

The area is gorgeous, and the views from the top of the lighthouse are breathtaking. The old lighthouse keepers' residence has a long hallway attached to the lighthouse, which was built to protect the keeper from the elements as he went to rotate the light every 6 hours. This historic residence has been a museum since 1968, and it features information regarding the history of the area and local wildlife. If you're visiting Maine, consider stopping by the Monhegan Lighthouse.
