Rhode Island is the smallest state in the U.S.A and in 1776, it was the first out of the thirteen colonies to declare its independence from Great Britain. With more than 643 kilometres (400 miles) of coastline, the sailing capital of the world can be found here and in Blackstone Valley, you can take a journey through history.
The Gilded Age mansions, beaches of South County, nature of Block Island, and coastal bikeway of East Bay can be found here as well as award-winning theatre and lovely restaurants.
With plenty of character, Rhode Island has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Learn about the popular festivals in the state and explore the top things to do. Here is our list of recommended Airbnbs in Rhode Island.
There are stages of emotions felt when stepping inside this midcentury-style apartment in Providence. The studio unit first gives off a somber ambiance with dark walls and wooden floors in the living-slash-bedroom area, but once you pass the arch to the kitchen, shocking splashes of colors are everywhere, from bright yellow walls and blue-green cabinets to accent furniture. The space is ideal for couples and is a quick walk to Thayer Street which is home to hangout spots and cute shops that are mostly frequented by students and young professionals nearby.
