My mom came to visit us again over her spring break which is always such a treat for us!
If you come to visit us, one of the first places we will bring you is here at Oakland Beach... not for the beach but for the food! Rhode Island is known for Iggy's Seafood, they were on The Food Network, and have the few things RI is known for... clam cakes, stuffies, and doughboys along with some really yummy clam chowder and fish n chips (what I always get)! There is also an awesome playground right on the beach so you really can't beat the beach, food and somewhere to play for your wild one.
We lucked out with no one being there that day since it had rained the couple days before!
