Atlantic Highlands vs. Liberty Landing === I just spent 5 days mooring at Atlantic Highlands (second time in 3 years) and have also done transient nights at Liberty landing.
Mooring at Atlantic Highlands was $50/night which includes launch service. The Yacht Club was welcoming and food there was good. If you want "city" action, you can catch the high speed ferry to NYC. Not sure of restaurants in town except "Memphis Pig Out" .. good if you like BBQ.
Liberty Landing is more "citified". A very nice new facility with showers and a good restaurant nearby. It looks like it is now $4/ft for transients. There were a couple of large party/tourist boats at the outside dock - loud for a while ....
Personally, I'd take the mooring at Atlantic Highlands.
Don't let the kids use the high powered binoculars just before you round Sandy Hook ;-)
