It's the time of year to fire up the grill, toss some Narragansett Del's Shandy into the cooler and get your friends over for some outdoor entertaining.

Not possible at your current digs? Consider these five homes for sale in Rhode Island with great backyards for entertaining.

1. 47 Pojac Point Road, North Kingstown — this house gives you six acres of stunning waterfront property in private and desirable Pojac Point. Enjoy an open floor plan that leads out to a big, wraparound porch with separate outdoor studio. Guests will enjoy natural walking trails on your sprawling property. And there's plenty of room to install an outdoor brick oven. All yours for a cool $1.75 million.

2. 245 Beechwood Drive, Cranston — This modern contemporary is a lot more affordable than the no. 1 home in this week's list at just $579,000. But you still get a sprawling open floor plan and a nicely sized lot in the highly desirable Ridgewood neighborhood in Cranston. The back yard is the perfect size for a friendly game of touch football or to serve a fine meal on the deck. Consider adding a pool, extend the deck into a stone patio or just turn the whole thing into a massive vegetable garden. Your choice.

3. 536 Stony Lane, North Kingstown — Here, you get privacy, 4.45 acres, a barn, gazebo and most of the outdoor work is done for you. See that awesome outdoor fireplace? Check out that built-in stainless steel grill! The outdoor patio is lined with cobblestones and there's enough room in the driveway for dozens of friends to park. Put down those tongs and spatula — you have to make an offer first!

4. 142 Mystery Farms Drive, Cranston — So this is why people move to Cranston. If this were just a few miles over in another town with higher prices, you'd be coughing up a million or two. Instead, for just $599,000, you get a remarkable house and a backyard that the Realtor is calling an entertainer's dream. You get a pool, amazing deck, cobblestone lined walkways, grill, covered lounge area outside with ceiling fans. Mother nature not giving enough of a breeze? Just flick a switch. The best part of this place is the luxury accommodations are both inside and out.

5. 661 Succotash Road #C, South Kingstown  — It's got a dock. What else can we say? You don't need a huge lot — though 9,615 square feet isn't something to sneeze at here — when you're perched on the edge of the water. Enjoy amazing views of Potter's Pond with sunset views to Block Island. Have your boating friends stop by for a drink before the sun goes down. Start a backyard garden and dangle your feet in the water when you take a break. You also get a few decks for entertaining. At just under $700,000, this is a low price for such waterfront access.
