Rhode Island is the smallest state in the Union. Also known as the Ocean State it has miles of coastline with some breathtaking vistas. The main city is the capital, Providence. A vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage it houses the famous Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University, and the State House. In the summers it boasts semi-monthly festivals along the river which flows through the heart of the city with arts, crafts, performance artists, and gondolas.

South and right along the ocean is Newport, home to the famous and lavish 'summer homes' of the late 1800s wealthy. Take a stroll along the wharfs and enjoy fantastic New England clam chowder, shopping, maritime history, and parks.

The state is bisected by Interstate 95. It is three hours from New York city and less than an hour from Boston. The major airport is T.F. Green Airport, located just outside Providence.
