A dawn view of lights of Bar Harbor from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, Maine
Watching the sunrise from just about anywhere is a glorious experience. But watching it from Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, Maine is a whole other thing. At 1530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is the tallest mountain on the East Coast of the United States. That might not seem very high, but you’ll be above the clouds, and the moment when you first see that orange glow is breath-taking.

The glow of the rising sun provides backlighting for the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse in Manteo, North Carolina
The Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse is distinctive on the Outer Banks, as it is the only river lighthouse in Dare County. River lighthouses are much shorter and squatter than their coastal counterparts, and they were used to guard the entrances to inland rivers and harbors.
The Roanoke Marshes lighthouse is often one of the most overlooked of the Outer Banks lighthouses, simply because of its small stature, limited visibility and remote location tucked away at the quiet east end of the Manteo (North Carolina) waterfront.
The current Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, unlike its Outer Banks counterparts, it not an original. Instead, it is a replica of the original lighthouse that was constructed in 1877 at the southern entrance of the Croatan Sound in Wanchese, to help both passing sailors and local fishermen find their way to port. This lighthouse was actually the third to carry the name “Roanoke Marshes Light” as the first two, also constructed in the 1800s, were lost soon after they were constructed and put into service.
