Good Ol’ Rocky Point
As a kid, so long ago, I spent many a times at a good ol’ place called Rocky Point Park. Yes, we used to have an amusement park in Rhode Island, set right on Narragansett Bay in Warwick!
My oldest memories are spending the day at Rocky Point, riding the rides, laughing, being somewhat frightened by the infamous flume ride, and then settling in for a bite to eat outside of the shore dinner hall. That also-infamous dinner hall was set right on the Bay, and we would sit and have chowder and clam cakes, while looking out over the water, watching the sailboats pass by.
Lots of good memories there. What an amazing place to visit as a kid, for sure, because of all of the attractions, games, and rides, but the view was spectacular! It really was the absolute best place to sit, grab a drink and have a bite to eat. I really can’t think of a better place to have visited as kid right in my own state just a few towns away from home. Miss that place!
