I really like Oxford--I think you'll find that you're not getting a consolation prize. As others have said, a nice town to walk around. Mears is a decent marina, good location and pretty easy to motor into.

With the Knapps Narrows drawbridge, there's no need to radio them until you are in the narrows. Tell them who you are and which direction you are going. They truly do open on demand, and I don't think I've ever waited more than a minute or two.
