My wife and I are contemplating retirement on the East Coast of the US and are trying to decide where our home port should be located. We're from Ohio, so the weather needs to be warmer and sunnier than here, but not necessarily as far south as Florida. Long distance cruising probably isn't in our future, but day sailing is. We're looking for suggestions. All are welcome.
It all depends on how much $ you intend to spend. Are you looking for a marina with hot tubs and day spas or something with a mooring ball? Crowded big city with lots to do, or quaint and quiet with nothing to do?
