The United States East Coast is rich in maritime history, including a wide array of beautiful lighthouses that mark areas laden with dangerous shoals, shallow points, and rocky bluffs. They mark points of particular concern for mariners traveling the nearby waters. While lighthouses' existence as navigational aids has diminished since the eras when they were constructed, these proud sentinels remain popular attractions of historical significance. The beacons stand as symbols of strength against the forces of nature and relentless power of the sea in each locale they protect. Throughout this unforgettable journey from Maine to Florida, you'll enjoy 200 stunning images and be inspired to take driving trips of your own. You will see what makes a lighthouse such an attractive object of affection for those who care about them and help keep them shining. A state-by state list of the organizations that preserve them is included. The beautiful photography of these beacons is a story in itself, one that may change your view of lighthouses forever.
