If you plan to travel the inland waterways this year, it’s time to pick up the new edition of Quimby’s Cruising Guide, which has been completed updated to provide the most accurate, accessible information for 2016. The go-to resource for inland recreational boaters covers more than 9,400 miles on 24 rivers and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, with 1,250+ listings and essential knowledge such as where to find fuel, overnight dockage, provisions and repairs. Additional information on locks and dams, towns, restaurants, landmarks and attractions is also presented, all in an easy-to-use, spiral-bound book format arranged by river, then river mile.

A special feature article in this year’s edition of Quimby’s focuses on great U.S. boating lakes — places to trailer your craft (or have a marina shuttle you) when you want to take a break from the inland waterways. Because, if rivers are the scenic byways into the heart of America, lakes are the fertile oases where we can relax, recharge and play.
