I successfully setup a site to site connection between two Sonicwalls.  However I can ping and only access the gateway address of the other site.  Cannot ping or access anyother IP.

Sounds like a routing issue.

On the remote site is the Sonicwall the default gateway, or is it an additional gateway?  If it's the latter, a static route would need to be configured on client machines to point to the Sonicwall as the route for the remote network.

Do a

route print

from machines on both networks, and the internal IP's of both sonicwalls and post here and I'll show you how to set this up.

It's usually as simple as running

route add <remote network address> <remote subnet mask> <gateway IP> -p

this needs to be run on all hosts on both networks...

You should also enable the split tunnel feature on both firewalls.

Remote site is an additional site.  Home site network is 192.168.168.x and remote is 192.168.100.x.  Gateway is 192.168.168.1 and 192.168.200.1.  I would like each site to go through their own gateway for internet traffic.

Thanks!

by default sonicwalls block pinging, have you enabled it?
or am i viewing the question wrong?

Oh I guess I had not enabled any access rules on the remote firewall.  The solution is enable ping or any other type of traffic you want from local site to lan site subnet.  Problems solved, thanks for all your help.
