Summary:
It stretches 2,500 miles from Boston to Miami. The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway is comprised of a system of canals, land cuts, and a series of natural and artificial barrier islands, which provide a protected passage for low-draft vessels wishing to avoid the tumultuous currents of the Atlantic Ocean. The AICW was conceived in the late 18th century, before there was a system of roads in America. A time when the numerous rivers, bays, and sounds along the eastern seaboard were the roads and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway was envisioned to be America's first superhighway. Much like Route 66, the AICW represents a bygone era. A time when the transport industry was in its infancy, and life moved at a slower pace. It's a safe bet that the ships that sail its waters today value it for that very reason.
