What's your budget? I've shopped the $10k-$15k 25'-30' segment a bit over the last couple of years. My favorites in that category for two adults and two kids for cruising are: Catalina 27, Sabre 28, Islander 28.
For whatever reason, it seems 30' or more gives a substantial price jump for intial costs, slip fees, upkeep, upgrades, etc. The 27/28 footers I mentioned above seem to have very similar layouts to their ~30' counterparts.
