the ocean state
Just because Rhode Island is the smallest state in the US does not mean it’s lacking in beauty and adventure. With over 400 miles of coastline, visitors can enjoy beaches, boat tours and ocean kayaking. The climate here makes it a happy home for many bird species such as blue jays, green herons, blue-winged warblers and woodpeckers. The tidepools that exist on Rhode Island beaches are another great way to experience the aquatic wildlife. Several boardwalk bike baths in this state give visitors the opportunity to take in the ocean from two wheels.
