Maine needs tourists, and for fun, it's nice to read about them bitching.

 

Two Lights State Park is a popular destination for Mainers and anyone visiting who likes our legendary rocky coast. Opened in 1961, the park has 41-acres of rocky headlands. You can see sweeping views of Casco Bay and the open Atlantic.

You'll notice that most of the complaints are about NO lighthouses!!  The park's name comes from the twin lighthouses near the end of Two Lights Road. Built in 1828, these were the first twin lighthouses on the coast of Maine. They aren't open to the public, but the eastern light is an active, automated light station, seen 17 miles at sea. The western light ceased is now a private home. To be clear, most of the reviews are VERY positive. But every once in a while, you get a Debbie Downer who just did not enjoy this park!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
