About Rhode Island

Rhode Island

Rhode Island is the smallest state in the United States of America, tucked between Massachusetts and Connecticut, in New England. Nonetheless, it has over 400 miles of coastline, courtesy of Narragansett Bay and islands such as Aquidneck Island, home to Newport, the "City by the Sea".

In historical perspective, tiny Rhode Island is the state that instigated the Revolutionary War when it denied any attachment to the British Crown. Oddly enough and counter to historical trends, the Ku Klux Klan posed a significant threat in the state following the Civil War. The huge influx of immigrants through all Northeast ports also drove their ire.

Economically Rhode Island is not capable of keeping up with other state productivity levels, but they have become known for healthcare. CVS, the pharmacy giant, makes its home in Rhode Island as does Amica Mutual Insurance.

Newport is one of the most popular destinations for tourists. The city, located on Aquidneck Island, is a collection of magnificent mansions. The properties remain largely privately owned. The stately mansions were built by the wealthy from both the south and the north. Newport is also the site for the annual Newport Jazz Festival. This music event draws thousands eager to hear the best in jazz and blues in one of the most beautiful environments in New England. In past years jazz and blues greats such as Muddy Waters, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis have dished up legendary performances.
