[8-7-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: Spring Point Ledge Light is one of how many lighthouses in Maine – the Lighthouse State?
The given options are:
Correct Answer: 65
Info: Maine is a state in the New England region of the United States, bordered by New Hampshire to the west; the Gulf of Maine to the southeast; and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec to the northeast and northwest, respectively. Maine has almost 230 miles (400 km) of ocean coastline (and 3,500 miles (5,600 km) of tidal coastline). Along the famous rock-bound coast of Maine are lighthouses, beaches, fishing villages, and thousands of offshore islands, including the Isles of Shoals, which straddle the New Hampshire border. Maine’s 65 historic lighthouses have stood watch on the state’s 5,000 miles of rocky coastline for hundreds of years, and today they’re popular tourist attractions. Of course, many, unlike Spring Point Ledge, can’t be reached on foot, but you can jump on a lighthouse boat tour to see them just like sailors do. (Ref)

There’s a horror movie based on this lighthouse, although it’s not scary 🙂
Lighthouse was part of many horror movies in the past. Nowadays, makers are using lighthouses in their plots.
Wow!!! 65 lighthouses in such a small place. It makes sense to call it the “Lighthouse State”.
Thanks for all your efforts in putting answers to these questions.
Are all 65 lighthouses operational or just for tourist attractions?
Good to find the answers. I was thinking it’s 100+.
