Rhode Island, its closer to more things.

Really I've never been to either, but this is my opinion from what I know.

That's sort of an odd comparison... They're completely different in every way.

Well, one's small and populated the other's large and desolate. I hate both situations but I'll go with Rhode Island because I always get pulled over in Wyoming and the HPs are jerks!

Where the heck did this one come from?

I'll go with Rhode Island.

In all fairness and for the sake of being honest, I've never been to Wyoming. I prefer more urban areas and larger populations (one reason why I can't wait to get back out of Maine). I also prefer the ocean.

Providence RI is one of my favorite small cities. It's just an excellent, cosmopolitan town with a fun culture, progressive attitude, and great schools. Newport is one of my favorite places to spend a summer... it parties hard and maintains a certain charm and beauty. The coast of RI is gorgeous.

It's also less than an hour from Boston and less than 3 from New York City.

Wyoming looks beautiful in pictures, but given my tastes, I can't imagine I'd rather live or visit Wyoming over Rhode Island.

I've never been to Rhode Island but have been to Wyoming quite a few times. Since I basically don't like the east coast and abhor population density, Wyoming is an easy choice.

Give me the wide open spaces of Montana and beautiful mountains. However, I have been to Rhode Island and liked it very much.

I may be biased. but in RI I don't have to worry about being outnumbered by cattle and if they ever surmise some sort of livestock uprising lol.

I'm sure all that cow doesn't smell to nice either....


ps. if this thread was about population density....NJ is more dense than RI fyi.

Wyoming.. Pretty empty, has no beaches, not much lush vegetation, and mountains.
Rhode Island.. Pretty densely populated, beaches, no mountains, and very green.

I would go for Rhode Island.
