Many people think of RI as the smallest state in the county but in fact it's not a real state but just a whole pile of water.
Rhode Island is a nice place to live if you like to fish, eat seafood and don't mind having your house wiped out by hurricanes every now and then.

Smallest state, most out of New Englanders think is an actual Island.

Big Blue Bug, "Free Buddy," Thayer's Street, clubbing in Providence, townies at the warwick mall, no school in Foster Gloster, bridges, islands, and summer beaches with a cup of del's and vodka.
Rhode Island is that island off New York, right?

no.

WORDS THAT COME TO MIND: del's lemonade, walking everywhere, the first original "beach state", delekta's pharmacy (where you can get candy for a penny), "bubbla", St. Mary's Academy-Bay View for girls, Providence, Newport, "Massholes", cutest boys, weridest people, history, waterfire, RISD, "Manhattan at the Bay", getting famous, having fun, being real, being yourself, clubing, "school mixers", and in Rhode Island? It's all about the arts.
"Oh, yeah. Remember the 9th grade mixer?"

"What's a mixer? Is it a drink?"

"You're obviously not from Rhode Island."

"Where's the bubbla?"

"What did you call me?!"

"The what?!"

"THE BUBBLA!!"

1. The greatest place in the world.
2. The nation's greatest kept secret... the best place to party, eat, relax, most culture, and the number one place to have a generally awesome time.
3. Home of New York System Weiners, Dels Lemonade, Salt and Vinegar on French Fries, Buddy Cianci, no school Fosta Glossta, and most importantly, Coffeemilk.
Rhode Island fucking rules... and no other state or even country could ever compare. Especially those outside of New England. You fuckers don't know what youre missing.

Known for Quahogs, the best seafood, clams bakes, and sailing around the Narragansett bay. Also known for tall ships and wicked awesome beaches (and some which you can find sea glass on)! We like tourists except for Massholes over the years of Mass being jealous of our beautiful landscape and independent nature. If one knows better they will not F*** with a Rhode Islander with our lengthy history of Privateering and doing what ever the F*** we want to do.

Also known for using the F word religously/frequently.

Where the forest meets the ocean-that is Rhode Island...

Excellent Italian dishes as well as seafood where ever you go. I do recommend staying farther south when visiting Rhode Island because the farther North you go, the closer you get to Massholes that screw everything up, and have those ugly license plates. Unless you are on your way to Maine, and in that case you must pass through the Masshole state.

We've got blinkers, and bubblas, and sometimes don't pronounce our R's.

Name Rhode Island came from it either resembling the Isle of Rhodes in the Mediterranean sea, or due to fact that Newport is like a road, long and skinny.
Rhode Islander: I hope you did not pock ya cah fah, because we have a lot of groceries to carry.

Foreigner: Excuse me?
