I used to work in Princeton (ETS) and have had boats on both the Delaware and Barnegat Bay. A lot will depend on where you live (relative to Princeton), but from there you can pick up back roads that will take you into the upper bay at Toms River, the middle bay around Forked River or to the Southern end around Barnegat. There's a mix of marinas and yacht clubs on the bay, and a wide range of amenities and prices. It really does pay to drive around and check them out.

We kept a 22 on the Delaware at G. Winters marina in Riverside, NJ for a couple of years when we were starting out. Nice place and good folks there. But the river gets boring after a while and the commercial traffic is not to be taken lightly.

Barnegat Bay is a LOT more pleasant place to sail and there's a lot more to do off the boat.

From Princeton the upper Chesapeake is a LONG drive. But with a trailer sailer you definitely want to think about the occasional weekend there. There is just a ton of great places to visit on the Chesapeake.
