This book is an excellent source of American Lighthouses. It gives a brief description of each light, and whether you can visit it. It is divided by state which is very helpful. We have visited over 250 lighthouses. This will assist us in finding the rest!

This is an excellent guide to lighthouses across the United States! We have visited lighthouses from Cape Hatteras north to Massachusetts, across the Great Lakes, and of course the Pacific Northwest (Point No Point Lighthouse and West Point Lighthouse in western Washington are favorites) as well as a few down the west coast as far south as the old Point Loma Light. I wish we would have had Joe Follansbee's book years ago! His "Fyddeye Guide to America's Lighthouses" introduces the reader to lighthouses by region, then by state, in an orderly manner which makes them easy to find. Not only that, he includes lightships and life-saving stations as well as lighthouse and maritime festivals across the country. If you find something he might have missed, drop him a line via his website at [...] and he'll update the website and the next edition of the book. All in all, this is a great guidebook and well worth your time if you are even remotely interested in lighthouses. When we travel now, this book goes with us!

I was very disappointed when I got this book. It has necessary facts about each lighthouse, but the only directions were latitude and longitude. I was hoping for driving or access directions. Also, the lighthouses were listed alphabetically. I want to make a list of lights to visit in order of close proximity to each other.
Perhaps it would be useful if bought with an area lighthouse map for each area visited.
I would also recommend American Lighthouses by Bruce Roberts and ray Jones, even if it is a bit outdated.

Although this book was not on my Christmas list, It certainly will be useful in our travels around the country. The information for each lighthouse is easy to read.
