"Small Village on the Sound" Rye by cjg1

Rye Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 192 photos

Rye is full of old houses and new mansions. The town itself has some good restaurants as well as shopping. Playland Park, Oakland Beach and Rye Beach are nice ways to spend a nice day with family, friends or someone special.

Liz and I spend alot of time walking Oakland or Rye Beach or having a meal at Seaside Johnnies,the Rye Bar & Grill, Ruby's or the Pier. Walking the beach is a favorite thing for us to do in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Talking a nice stroll then enjoying a great meal outdoors is my idea of a good night.

Living in walking distance of the beach is the best. Not having to deal with the trouble of traffic or parking has made this an excellent move.

Pros and Cons

    I just can't bring myself to go over and see the damage to the boardwalk and pier. So much of my childhood memories were washed away during this storm; Jersey shore, Long Beach, Rockaway and even Rye...it's like someone took an eraser and wiped everything away.

    Nice tips on Rye - and love that refreshing picture of start of spring... It is sooo hot here now in Arizona (we got 108!)...no flowers will survive...
