"Rhode Island: 3% Bigger at Low Tide," reads a best-selling T-shirt by designer Hilary Treadwell. It’s a bit of an exaggeration: the state geologist actually calculates.5%. But the smallest state’s size is a big source of pride given all there is to do and see within its 1,500 square miles (one-third of those are water). The visitor may find it hard to choose from so many experiences: historic tours, fine dining, and WaterFire in Providence; apple picking and canal-boat rides in the Blackstone Valley; fishing trips and hitting the beach in South County or Block Island; pedaling along Bristol’s bike path; and taking sunset sails and touring Gilded Age mansions in Newport.
