A nice place to take a ride to and enjoy the view if you are a Rhode Islander. We stop by often in the summer time. Good places to eat too.

I love Oakland Beach. It's a great place for lunch at Iggy's and just a nice place to stroll along the bay. I go there many times when visiting RI.

Avoid Marleys for food. Not there strong point. The others are good.Top of the Bay has good food and wonderful views! Marleys is ok for drinks on the patio. Iggy's is a R.I. Icon. Get there befor mealtime. The line can get long!
