and great small colleges and universities enhance opportunities for young people socially and professionally.
. I can't recommend any specific place to you, but if you simply scan the Active Captain listings along the Gulf Intracoastal you can see the options. .
I think the Activecaptain website is great for learning about an area and marinas for the entire ICW including the Cheaspeake. Speaking of colleges I know that there is a great little college on the St. Mary's River off the Potomac River. The Governor's Cup race held in August of each year finishes there starting from Annapolis. Plus if you like history there is a recreation of the first English settlement in Maryland much like a mini Williamsburg with people dressed up in period costume and acting like early settlers. Many of the actors are from the college I believe.
