I boat regularly on LIS and have boated down by Wildwood & Atlantic City....Both are Great places to boat so either way you'll have a great time. Personally I think the kids would have a better time in Wildwood/Ocean City, etc, with all the rides and things to do there. But if you want to spend more time boating and less time running around, I would do LIS.

I'd go the NJ route, not because I live down here, but because of the kids. As was said above, there are plenty of places on your way down with rides, games, water parks, and boardwalks.

Once you get out to eastern LI sound, the water is clean.
With the kids, you should spend a day or two at Fire Island, then from there you can run West back to NYC.
Fire Island has no cars, and is a great place for kids!!! Awsome beaches.

Greenport... Townsend Manor Inn. 93octane. good pool and a walk to town. Town has a carousel w/ brass ring. Greenport is classic East End w/o the pretensiosness(sp?) of Hamptons.

If you do LI sound run, here's how i'd do it.
Run and stay the connecticut side running east.
1. Essex CT - 1nite
2. Mystic CT (seaport) - 1nite
3. Newport (big homes from turn o' the century). 1-2 nite
4. Marthas Vinyard... Edgartown is the place to stay (Jaws filmed there!) 1-2nite
5. Back west to Block Island 1-2 nite
6. Montauk... 1 nite
7. Greenport 1-2 nite (can go to shelter island and Sag harbor from there.
8. Run from Greenport, thru the Shinnecock Canal and run the outside to Fire Island.
9. Fire Island for 2 nites.
10 Head West, come in Jones Beach, have lunch in Freeport or @ Paddy Magees or Jordans Lobster. Run back out of East Rockaway Inlet to the city.

Should be a great managable trip.
Every day should be 3hrs, or much less on the boat.
Sorry, I've got no pics.

BTw.. how old are the kids you'll be with?
