Re: Where is the best cruising in the USA?
I'll throw in another tip of the cap for the Great Lakes. We have beautiful water, great harbors, soaring dunes, rocky bluffs, forested wilderness complete with wolves/moose/bear, big cities (Chicago, Milwaukee, etc.), funky islands (Beaver), uninhabited islands (100's), historic races (Chi-Mac), open water, and more.
We do not have tides, barnacles, sharks, jellyfish, red tides, or hurricanes.
Of course the caveat to all of this sailing splendor is that you'll have to enjoy it between April and October when the water isn't too hard for sailing.
Having said that, I'm also a big fan of Maine and SW Florida for cruising grounds. Actually, I don't think I've cruised or visited anywhere "boaty" that I'm not fond of.
