Another vote for St Augustine. Meets all the needs you listed in your initial post. Well maintained moorings and downtown activities are in easy walking distance. Lots of history activities for the boys, good inexpensive public transportation for regular shopping (West Marine, hardware stores, Target, etc) and a water taxi to the grocery store. What luxury not to have to lug your provisions in the dinghy after walking them in your backpack... Lots of restaurants. Active cruising community and good access to marine services. Good deep inlet with easy access to the ocean.
