How far west are you planning to go? Oyster Bay is nice, some good restaurants (Wild Onion is my favorite, Canterbury Ales Pub is also worth a visit). Plenty of marinas. Don't know about "cheap", though.

Get a copy of the Embassy guide for Long Island Sound. Lots of good info on the endless harbor choices on both sides of the Sound. And don't forget the options of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Buzzards Bay, and Narragansett Bay.

i am sailing out of the conn river. dont know where oyster bay is . can somone let me know. i have heard about port jefferson. any specific marina thats good or anchorage? As far as the places mentioned in mass i have tried there a few times but i dont have radar yet and every time i try to go there is heavy fog.
I am also interested in a nice pirvate (or at least as quiet as possibly) anchorage where i could anchor for a day, swim and hang out possibly stay for a night

Jason, why not go online and get a chart of the area ? I think that would be a great place to start. It will show you where port Jefferson and Oyster Bay is among all the others. Doesn't do anyone any good if you get recommendations and don't know where they are. You can download free charts at the NOAA web site.
