Rhode Island Travel Guide

"Rhode Island: 3% Bigger at Low Tide," reads a bestselling 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.
