Sailing down east coast

I have read lots about this topic. But, does anyone know of a book/guide on sailing down the east coast? One that would include good ports, anchorages, marinas, etc.?
I want to leave Newport, RI in early September and sail down to Norfolk. I realize it is hurricane season, but not in a hurry and just looking for 24-48 hour windows.
Appreciate any recommendations.
John

Re: Sailing down east coast

• skipperbob.net -ICW anchorages, marina info, etc.
Waterway Guide
• Direct Wifi connection (for your laptop) to Waterway Guide website for latest info on shallow spots/trouble areas. for GPS coordinates through the extreme problem areas of the ICW. You'll have to filter out all the 'anecdotal' info contained in 'reports'.
(don't use the waterway guide 'companion' .... poorly done and not usually 'current' up-to-date info)
• Any 'strip chart' (book of serialized pages) of individual charts of the ICW
Passageweather.com for reliable weather, wind&wave info --- forget NOAA broadcasts.
SSB radio (just a 'good' receiver needed) - to 'listen in' to Chris Parker https://www.mwxc.com/ ..... for the BEST passage weather info for traveling 'outside' ... see broadcast schedule for time and frequencies on mwxc.com
• SE Coast Inlet Guide - WhiteSoundPress 'general info' for most SE coast inlets. Prepare list of 'local' USCG office phone numbers in case you need 'specifics' on (less than 'class A' / all weather) inlets.
