28 Things You Need To Know About Rhode Island

With the Summer and Fall students starting to move in, many from other states and even other countries, it’s the perfect time to point out all the great things here in the smallest state in the country.

Movoto.com put this list together and it should help those newbies to little Rhody with their 28 things about Rhode Island.  Now I would have ranked Iggy’s and Del’s lemonade higher than their respective, 11 and 12  spots but still I thought this is an excellent list.

From Movoto.com:

It may be tiny, but this state has got big personality.

1. One Taste Of An Awful Awful Will Blow Your Mind

The nickname of this delicious, creamy beverage, served at Newport Creamery, is short for “Awful Big, Awful Good.” It’s an extra thick milkshake that’s made with ice milk and is oh-so incredibly tasty. Once you try it, you’ll never want a milkshake from anywhere else.

8. For A Hot Date Take Your Special Someone To WaterFire

Everyone in Rhode Island knows that WaterFire is the best place to take a date. This award-winning sculpture by Barnaby Evans, presented on the rivers of downtown Providence, was first created in 1994 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of First Night Providence.

WaterFire has grown to become an annual public art phenomenon, where, on WaterFire evenings, downtown Providence is transformed by 100 bonfires that burn just above the surface of the three rivers that pass through the middle of downtown Providence.

The sight is truly a beautiful, so it’s only natural this is a prime spot for young love.

11. Or Make Your Taste Buds Dance With Some Of Iggy’s Clam Cakes

Iggy’s has been awarded Best Clam Shack honors from Rhode Island Monthly and featured nationally on CBS’s “The Early Show” as their pick for the Best Clam Chowder as part of their: A Taste of America series. And it’s no wonder why: Iggy’s is just a true Rhode Island tradition that features award winning doughboys, chowder, clam cakes, fish & chips, and more. But everyone’s favorite is, by far, the clam cakes.

12. Del’s Lemonade Is Pretty Much The Nectar Of The Gods

What is more refreshing than a Del’s frozen lemonade on a hot summer day in Rhode Island? Nothing. The answer is nothing. Del’s takes shaved ice to the next level: it’s sweet, sour delicious flavor is part of what makes being a Rhode Islander so wonderful.

18. But When It’s Not Storming, Rhode Island Has The Best Beaches In New England

In all honesty, Rhode Island beaches are by far the most quaint and beautiful in all of New England. They can be rocky, sandy, dramatic, or calm. So, a quintessential part of a Rhode Island is the feel of sand beneath your toes. Whether you head to the smaller beaches of Newport County or the more hidden beaches on Block Island, or a thrilling experience at the South County beaches where you’ll find the best surfing of your life—you’re bound to enjoy the endless opportunities by the water.
