Marina Recommendations CT/RI ??

So, a bit of a change in plans, we were considering the Chesapeake with the new boat but are now looking to move her from NJ to CT or RI. We both love New England and don't like high heat and humidity, plus we have friends and family up that way. Not to mention we love Block, Nantucket, Marta's , etc..

We are looking for marina selections and recommendations for anywhere from Old Saybrook, CT right up to Newport, RI. We just want the perfect place- that's all... Ideally, decent amenities, walkable to bar , restaurants, etc.., sheltered, full services, etc..

We are planning a drive up later this week to start looking.
Thanks in advance!

Maybe one of the Brewer marinas? They have full amenities and services, and their website says the one in Mystic is walking distance to downtown Mystic with shops, restaurants, etc.

Brewer marinas are nice. We have stayed in them all various places along the Sound when we need to come ashore.

Yes the Chessie is humid in July and August. Is why we take a three week trip to the LI Sound then. The tradeoff is the length of the sailing seasons and well as the ability to go to thousands of scenic nature anchorages.

Chessapeake sailing goes from March to end of Novemeber at least. The LI Sound starts in May and ends in beginning to mid October for most. I will put up with the heat/ and humidity to sail here in the fall when it is most beautiful.

Choose your spot carefully as many areas of the LI Sound experience the doldrums sometimes in the summer. Especially the mid to western areas.

I would look at Mystic, Olde Saybrooke, Newport and points north. If you are going to drive that far whats another hour in traffic.

Good luck. At least we have someone to visit in our trip up north

If you don't mind trekking a little further north into MA, I definitely recommend checking out some of the marinas along Buzzards Bay. Primo cruising grounds, easy access to the Vineyard, Nantucket, and the Elizabeths, and there are a number of really solid marinas from which to choose. I'm partial to Red Brook Harbor (Kingman and Parker's) but on-Cape isn't necessarily everyone's cup of tea.
