I can be legal to rent a live aboard slip behind a house in Ft. Lauderdale with a attached pump-out hose as long as the neighborhood covenants/restrictions allow, but I agree that there's no place to sail except out the inlet. Charleston and even the Chesapeake is hotter than south Florida on summer days, though a little cooler at night. Annapolis, San Fransciso, Boston & Newport are great sailing towns, but "stupid expensive" by my judgement. The inexpensive sailing towns run from the southern Chesapeake to North Florida (Deltaville, Hampton, Norfolk, Oriental, New Bern, Georgetown, Charleston, both Beauforts, Jacksonville, Titusville) and on the Gulf Coast,- Ft. Myers, Bradenton, Tampa Bay, Tarpon Springs, Panama City, Pensacola + some Miss-Ala-La-Tex places that I'm not familiar with.
