So we all know RI is the smallest state, but what do you think of when you hear "Rhode Island". What do you know about this tiny state?

What I instantly think of: jonnycakes and the pronunciation of "KveeANNstun."

What I know of RI:

-- Some beautifully wild ocean beaches without development on them
-- Before coffee became a boutique drink, the RI and SE MA passion for coffee ice cream and coffee milk
-- The Old Slater Mill
-- A chicken breed bears its name
-- The border to it was only 30 miles from where I spent nearly all my grade school years

Beautiful beaches, gorgeous bay, tidal estuaries & salt marshes.

Providence with its Federal Hill neighborhood - an Italian area with great restaurants & food; Brown University, gondolas along the river in the city

Newport with the mansions, Jamestown, Narragansett- very water oriented towns, endless marinas all over the state

clam cakes, coffee milk, stuffies ( stuffed quahogs), RI clam chowder ( clear broth, not milk)

The Mercy Brown vampire incident is what comes to mind when I think of Rhode Island.
