Iggy’s Clam Shack
As Rhode Islanders, we all know what it’s like to take a trip to the beach and grab some delicious seafood from Iggy’s. A staple of Rhode Island’s many beach and roadside clam shacks, their clam cakes are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and stuffed with meaty Rhode Island quahogs. Best served hot, they come beside a bowl of Rhode Island clam chowder which is perfect for dunking!
Del’s Frozen Lemonade
When Del’s opens up every spring, you know that summer is just around the corner! Only in Rhode Island, Del’s Lemonade has become a staple for the summer season. Originally founded in Italy, the yummy treat was made with snow and lemons. This idea traveled to Rhode Island as descendants brought it here in 1948. The large amount of Del’s Lemonade stands throughout Rhode Island cover the map, making it easy to find refreshment when you need it.
