I keep my boat in Pensacola. The gulf coast is great for boating, you can stay inside the barrier or hit the outside on a nice day. Lots of boater friendly bars/restaurants in Orange Beach and Pensacola. Plenty of great private and public beaches to pull up on.

Oh, and be prepared for your boat insurance to triple!

We spent a bit of time there while living in North MS. Daphne/Orange beach, the east side, is nice. Mobile has a decent downtown, but it's a fairly industrial feel around the rest of it. Lots of poor areas.

Nice thing is that its close to New Orleans and Florida Beaches, so accessibility is good.
