Next up is the South River. Nice anchorages to be found in Harness Creek, no marinas.
If you want night life and a place to meet your land lubber friends then Annapolis would be your best bet. They charge you by the minute to tie up in 'Ego Alley' but they do have showers, on shore head and it is kind of fun to be right in the thick of it. I'd grab a transient mooring if I wanted to spend the night there. 1 overnight mooring should be < $100.
$35 for moorings suitable for boats 36+ (don't know the upper limit) and $25 for the under 35' moorings in Church Cove on Spa Creek.
