Totally doable at least from the mid Chesapeake up on either shore or hop scotching back and forth. The choice of anchorages on the Chesapeake is nearly limitless and the choice is up to you if you anchor near amenities and visit by dink or in a more secluded spot where you just hang on the boat.

While all the above is true and I'm not aware of any place on the bay that is significantly less expensive than Deltaville, the OP did want things in walking distance and said the word "Nightlife". I suppose walking distance is relative, but for me, none of the marinas in D'ville are really within reasonable walking distance to the shopping/dining areas. Also, I wouldn't say that Deltaville had anything approaching the term "Nightlife". There a a few Restaraunt/Bars where you can mingle with locals and the weekenders from Richmond amid the cigarette fog but that's about it.

So if you can work around those issues Deltaville is likely to be the least expensive place you can find with access to a whole bunch of good marine services available.

JDF Joys Marina in Hampton.They do allow some liveaboards. Not much on extras only showers but short walk to numerous restaurants/night life ,stores,hotel. Good access to the bay. Large full service marina within sight (Bluewater Yacht) if you need to hauled. Let me know if you want the #

ughmo2000 Thanks to all who've responded.

I've stayed at the Cutty before, and talked to Bill Sat. Apparently they don't/no longer allow liveaboards. I've a few other leads but still looking. Might just end up on the hook for awhile.

SailKing1 Cutty sark in Norfolk is cheap and a DIY marina right near the Bay bridge tunnel. GGreat access to bay and ocean. About 1 mile to shopping center with grocery and west marine. Many restaurants in walking distance. Good people that own marina. It is abit old and not updated. Many other marinas in that area.

Yeah, it is isn't it! And thanks for responding.
As for location it really doesn't matter. My first choice would be southern. Around Norfolk or close by. Other than that something quiet, clean, with stores relatively close that isn't too outrageous in price.
