Rhode Island State Capitol

Rhode Island is located in the northeastern United States and is the smallest state in the nation. It is bordered by Connecticut on the west and Massachusetts on the north. It features a rocky coastline with sharp cliffs and beautiful ocean views. Rhode Island also has several large bays and inlets. The state was one of the original 13 American colonies and the first to declare independence from British rule. Historic sites can be found throughout the state, including National Heritage Sites and military, religious, cultural, and Gilded Age sites.

The capital of Rhode Island is Providence. The city offers a rich cultural and architectural heritage dating back to 1636 when the city was founded. Providence has one of the largest and most diverse concentrations of preserved architecture and landmarks in America, in addition to a vibrant restaurant scene, active arts community, shopping, and more.

Rhode Island real estate showcases the state’s historical significance and its proximity to water. Historic neighborhoods, waterfront cottages and mansions, and urban multi-family dwellings provide enough diversity for home buyers to find the perfect Rhode Island property.
