Hi, my parents and I are going to Rhode Island next week for a couple of days and I have a few questions I was hoping to get answered...TIA! 1) Is jewelry applicable to RI sales tax? I know clothing isn't, but does jewelry count as clothing? and some other non-jewelry related questions... 2) Which beach in Newport is better? Gooseberry or Eastons? Or is there another you can suggest? Are those beaches usually crowded? 3) Is Oakland beach clean, a good beach? How crowded does it usually get? THANKS SO MUCH! This helps me out a LOT!
