Rhode Island – the smallest state in landmass size, yet it has more state parks and beaches per square mile than California! Known for its beautiful shorelines and summer vacation resort towns, Rhode Island is a great place to live. With some of the best schools in the nation, and slightly higher than average cost of living, the different things to do and see in Rhode Island are a bonus. You can walk the Newport Cliffs, tour the 9 Newport Mansions, partake in the abundant seafood of the Atlantic, catch a theater show in Providence, or visit the third oldest lighthouse in the country in Jamestown. Summers are generally mild with temperatures in the 80’s, and winters are cool, averaging 40 degrees. Wherever you end up in this state, you are sure to be near something different to do.
