Big Experiences Await in "Little Rhody"

Officially called the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, its name is almost bigger than its size. “Little Rhody” measures just 48 miles from north to south and 37 miles east to west—confirming what locals already know: It only takes about 20 minutes to get anywhere in Rhode Island. Hotels are even easier for visitors to get to, as this is the second-most densely populated of all 50 U.S. states.

Things to do in Rhode Island

History of Artisans

The Industrial Revolution was launched in Rhode Island. During your hotel stay in Pawtucket, visit Slater’s Mill, the first U.S. textile mill and predecessor to many more factories that populated the East Coast in the 19th century. Many of those old mills along the Blackstone Valley have been converted into co-ops and shared workspace for the area’s emerging artists and artisans.

Endless Coastlines

Rhode Island’s official nickname is “The Ocean State.” That’s because, even though the total area of the state is just 1,214 square miles, there are more than 400 miles of pristine shoreline. Situated between Newport and Portsmouth on Aquidneck Island is Middletown, which has emerged in just the past few decades as the island’s central business district with a variety of shops, restaurants and hotels.

Dining and The Arts

Rhode Island’s capital, Providence, is steeped in history. But modern culture, art and cuisine are drawing more and more visitors here today. The world’s largest culinary school is based here, at Johnson and Wales, and creativity rules beyond the hip cafes in Providence. The world-renowned WaterFire public art installation along the riverfront is a travel experience you’ll never forget.
