If you see lots of water, low-numbered license plates, and stone-ender houses, you’re in the Ocean State. Rhode Island is the smallest among its brethren, but still the second most densely populated, and it has the longest official name.
1/6 of the state’s territory are large picturesque bays and tiny intimate inlets, and the beaches of Washington County boast spectacular sunsets and high tourist density during summers. Be prepared for the Rhode Island accent and the weird way locals like to name food. By the way, while we’re here: don’t forget Little Rhody is hot for coffee milk, snail salad, pizza strips, and dough boys; all local specialties with a high chance you won’t find them outside of the state.
Providence, Warwick, and Cranston are all old towns packed with historic places and modern entertainment alike. There’re also plenty of great employers: CVS Health, Textron, United Natural Foods, and Citizens Financial Group, all in the Fortune 500 list. Brown University is the best school in the state.
