Visit Rhode Island - The Ocean State

       The draw of the tiny state of Rhode Island includes its historic buildings and renowned figures from America’s early history. However, there is so much more to this state, including its 400+ miles of shoreline where you can enjoy a day of leisure and just relax for a bit. Or, if you love performing arts, you can visit the Colonial Theatre in Westerly, the Mill River Player in Central Fall or the 2nd Story Theatre in Warren, amongst others. Your whole family can enjoy time in Easy bay, and you’ll find all kinds of outdoor fun like kayaking, hiking, bicycling, and  you can find all kinds of shopping areas and several different museums.
Like many other states, Rhode Island’s history begins with the Native Americans. There were three main tribes that lived here, including the Narragnasett, which is now a federally recognized tribe in the state. The history of the state shows that the main areas in which they lived were in what is now Warwick, next to the great bay (now Exeter and South Kingstown). The Italian navigator, Giovanni Verrazzano had described the area as the size of a Greek Island of Rhodes, giving the state its name. Rhode Island became one of the first colonies to state its independence from England. This history of this state is very prominent no matter where you go, even on the beaches in the historic lighthouses. Plus, you’ll find historic Revolutionary War forts in the great port cities.
When you travel to Rhode Island, you’ll find many different regions to visit. Newport is one of the most famous for its Gilded Age mansions that were built to be summer cottages. There are all kinds of tours, wine festivals, garden shows and Christmas galas. You can enjoy endless  sightseeing here with the Colonial-period houses, plus enjoy plenty of museums, fine dining and  enter-tainment. The Blackstone Valley region gets its name from the river which was the first power source of the mills in the United States. This area presents a great way to see America because it is full of the industrial history of the U.S.,  plus has authentic ethnic dining presented by  the French Canadian, Italian, Irish and Portuguese immigrants who are settled here.
If you love national parks you will want to visit the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor. It is a unique park in that it contains cities, villages, and towns of almost one million people. It was set up to preserve the area for future gener-ations. Inside this park you’ll also find lots of local municipalities, businesses, two state governments, educational institutions and nonprofit historical and environmental organizations. Rhode Island also has state parks such as the Lincoln Woods State Park, the Colt State park and the Goddard Memorial State Park.
Even though Rhode Island is the smallest of the fifty states, it has much to offer in its history and attractions. If you are a history buff you can learn a lot  from visiting Rhode Island, and if you just enjoy seeing the beautiful sights, there is plenty of that available as well.
