Savannah

We had a very nice visit to Savannah a few years back, stayed on the waterfront with moderate dock fees to the City and countless generosity from their staff and the tourism office. Our family agreed it was one of the friendliest spots along the ICW. There's much to see elsewhere on the ICW in Georgia too. Granted, we didn't stay over 30 days, but I wouldn't recommend skipping the state because of this issue. It is a touchy issue when you mention liveaboards to these municipalities. If you take up residence in a bay or in front of someone's scenic waterfront mansion, it is going to be easy for them to over-react and worry about a crime problem, sewage, etc. Hard to fight that as a minority sized group. I agree with the other reply about writing to the governor/tourism office. Eventually the pendulum will swing back to something more reasonable with these efforts. But, don't skip the state entirely!
