Maine Coastal Lighthouse Road Trip Itinerary Overview

I just got back from a truly amazing adventure through the coast of Maine where I spent 10 nights and 11 days exploring little towns on the water and getting my fill of lighthouses. Did you know that Maine has 65 lighthouses? I didn't, until I started to plan this trip. Some of them are accessible by land, and many of them are on smaller islands, and are only accessible by boat or ferry. But, there is absolutely no shortage of them to see, and plenty of beautiful, pine tree-lined coastline to take in during such a beautiful drive through the state. 

I was lucky enough to visit 10 lighthouses, and also see a couple from the water, during my trip. Planning out my itinerary was a challenge and it took me a lot of time to figure out the best route so that I covered a lot of ground while also dividing up my driving time each day so I didn't feel like I was spending too much time in the car. So, I thought I would do a little overview post of my itinerary in hopes that it will help someone out there retrace my steps for the perfect coastal Maine lighthouse road trip.
