I'd make sure to tie up to the patio barjust inside the Manasquan Inlet. Beer and bar food out on the deck, more formal dining inside at either the Wharfside or Lobster Shanty. I was at the Patio bar yesterday, and had a great time. As far as a place for the kid's, the boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach is much more family friendly, although I may be a bit impartial, as I lived there for 25 years or so. Another fun boat place is near the top of Barnaget bay. Just as you get through the Point Pleasant Canal, Head south for about a mile, you'll approach the Mantoloking Bridge. Just before the bridge on on the right, you'll see the opening for the F-cove(yep, shaped like an F). Usually get 50+ boats there on the weekend. Pull up on the side, break out the party\picnic gear. Boats also tend to anchor just off of Treasure Island (which Frank mentioned). Robert Louis Stevenson lived on the river when he wrote the novel of the same name. Hope you get some good weather for your vaca.

Don't leave out the Pilot House @ the very end of the Metedeconk River. Head west till you get to the end and follow to your right as you pass Windward Beach. Stay between the markers. I popped in the F-Cove this weekend. Open exhaust on my outboards woke a few people up. OOps! Sorry Enjoy your stay!

Thanks everyone! This will give me a big head start. It's been over 20 years since I've been to the boardalks, and I am really looking foward to taking my twin girls there. I sure have great memories of down there as a kid. We use to stay at Chadwick Beach. Does anyone remember the old double decker bus that use to be there? I 'll check in when I get up to NJ to see if anyone else has any ideas. What about getting gas on the water any place better than others? Thanks again everyone!!
