Besides the schools, the town has one of the most famous lighthouses in America; Portland headlight, one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. The Lighthouse is located in the 94-acre Fort Williams Park (containing ruins of the old fort, which housed troops in World Wars I and II) and many other facets of Cape Elizabeth has preserved the realm of old-world days, including working farms, historic homes and a small town center.
At Two Lights State Park, you can have an unobstructed views of Casco Bay and the Atlantic ocean. The park's name originated from the twin lighthouses located nearby at the end of Two Lights Road. Built in 1828, these were the first twin lighthouses on the coast of Maine. Although not open to the public, the eastern light is an active, automated light station, visible 17 miles at sea. The western light ceased operation in 1924 and is now a private home. One of these towers was the subject of Edward Hopper's famous painting "Lighthouse at Two Lights.". Similarly, the Crescent Beach State Park is popular spot for swimming, picnicking or walking.
Cape Elizabeth is a sought-after community just a few minutes from downtown Portland. Because of its close proximity to Portland, the residents of Cape Elizabeth have full access to all the advantages of Maine’s largest city.
