About Rhode Island

The smallest state of the union, the State of Rhode Island, is one of the most densely populated and heavily industrialized for its size. For a state that is only 37 miles wide and 48 miles long, it is notable that its shoreline on Narragansett Bay in the Atlantic Ocean runs for 400 miles.

Rhode Island is known for sandy shores and seaside Colonial towns. It's home to several large cities, including Newport, which is famed for sailing and Gilded Age mansions, such as The Breakers. Providence, its capital, is home to Brown University, Roger Williams Park, Waterplace Park and Riverwalk, with the famed WaterFire art installation.
