Not surprised by those two, but was surprised by no Connecticut, I think a lot of inactive ones there.

I figured Connecticut doesn't have many since it's basically shielded from the open ocean by Long Island. Though I'm not sure just how much that alleviates the need for lighthouses.

michigan has a lot of coastline considering it pretty much has 5 sides surrounded by water. also lighthouses are moreso for small boats since large boats are docking at lit up urban areas anyways

The majority of these mark hazards, which the Great Lakes have plenty of.

I was putting all the states on the Atlantic and Pacific and then realized at 0:47 seconds left that we can do states on the Great Lakes. So happy. 100/100! Good luck to all!
