    Ok. I have to throw in for my City. You can get a nice apartment very close to your slip in Harbor East/Fells Point/Canton. There are many marinas that are reasonably priced that are literally across the street from where you could live. Baltimore is also a great food town and the good eating choices are limitless. COL there is not cheap but not outrageously expensive either. Many extended middle age and retired folks are moving in here just to enjoy what the city offers. Also all the stuff that makes it to the news happens well away from the waterfront. Lots of boat services here and Nick's Fish House is one of the best float up bars outside the tropics (IMHO of course).

    So many great food destinations available to my US friends, New England seafood, Texas BBQ, I could wax poetic for an hour. We also have some great destinations and the sailing is definitely on par, sadly a shorter season. IMG_0423.JPG IMG_0417.JPG

    Been sailing in Buzzards Bay for a while now and can't vouch for the other regions mentioned. BB is a beautiful sailing area with lots of wind and destinations within a day sail including Newport and Block Island. I've been in New Bedford for a few seasons now. I came because it's reasonable cost wise for this area and I will never leave.
    We're also behind a hurricane barrier which does add a sense of security.
    Wish i could retire. Good Luck!

    I'll bet you'll miss Sal's pizza
