The Northeastern state of Rhode Island; one of the original thirteen colonies and part of the region of the nation known as New England, is home to both natural attractions and historical sites as well as unique destinations such as the Ivy League School of Brown. All that Rhode Island has to offer is packed into the smallest state of the Union, giving prospective residents a great chance to look at real estate and homes for sale. The region of Blackstone Valley is famous for the Slater Memorial Park Carousel, while South County is home to Misquamicut Beach and the Historic Downtown region. Providence and the capital area surrounding it is home to East Greenwich, with its charming main street and self proclaimed title of “Wedding Capital of Rhode Island” and the Roger Williams Park Zoo.
The East Bay area, however, is home to most of Rhode Island’s attractions. Here, you can find the Environmental Education Center, complete with museum and aquarium, the Barrington Preservation Society Museum, the Blithewold Mansion, Gardens, and Arboretum, the Charles W. Greene Museum, Coggeshall Farm Museum, Colt State Park, the Crescent Park Carousel, the Fire Museum, and the Herreshoff Marine Museum. The Newport region is the place to find even more attractions, from helicopter rides, John F. Kennedy’s Summer Home, and Castle Hill to the Naval War College Museum and Newport Vineyards. The capital city of Providence is also a great place to find a vibrant nightlife, shopping malls, and excellent restaurants.
