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? 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!
