The West Quoddy Light is one of the most recognizable lighthouses in Maine, thanks to its candy cane surface. Erected in 1808 - and rebuilt in 1858 - the lighthouse is located at the easternmost point of land in the continental United States. Automated in 1988, it is still a working lighthouse. The visitor's center is open daily, from Memorial Day weekend to mid-October, from 10:10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
