Lighthouses are an inimitable part of Massachusetts’ history, and no matter the season, they never fail to enchant us with their charm.

This winter, we’ve seen quite the mix of spectacular lighthouse scenes, particularly from explorers and wanderlusts who have been kind enough to share their photos with us on Instagram.
In no particular order, take a trip back in time to an earlier nautical era with each of these scenic, Massachusetts lighthouse photos!
