We're (group of 3 adults and one 8yr old) currently looking to rent somewhere for a week in August and one of them happens to be in Rockaway Beach. I'm trying to get a feel for the place to see if this would suit us. We are looking for a small town which has a good beach for exploring and walking and also some places to eat we could possibly walk to for meals out. Also well located for day trips out by car to other parts of the coast.
Does Rockaway beach fit this sort of a description? Any insight into the area would be much appreciated, thank you.
