Rhode Island


Rhode Island (and Providence Plantations) the smallest state with the longest name. The last of the 13 colonies. Established in 1636 Rhode Island is rich with culture. We have two of the best colleges in the country Brown University and RISD (The Rhode Island School of Design). We're "The Ocean State" guided by its state motto of "Hope".
