I'm looking to connect two facilities with a a pair of Cisco 1242 access points and am looking for advice on configuration. We have multiple VLANs running that will need to be passed through the connection, but otherwise a fairly simple setup. Any advice on best practices from security, reliability, and speed points of views?

I think you made need to be more specific. If you are asking about the Vlan portion you just need to configure a trunk with dot1q tagging on the router. After you create the vlans in the DB, it is just something like:

interface FastEthernet0/1
 no ip address
interface FastEthernet0/1.1
 encapsulation dot1Q 10
 ip address
interface FastEthernet0/1.2
 encapsulation dot1Q 20
 ip address
