Rhode Island Map

Rhode Island is not an island. It is the smallest of the 50 US states by area, situated on the East Coast of the United States in the New England Region. Compared it is just about twice the size of the city of Phoenix in Arizona. Rhode Island covers a total area of 1,544 sq mi (3,999 km²), thereof consists one-third of water (511 sq mi; 1,324 km²). This might be the reason for its official nickname "The Ocean State", the other one is 'Little Rhody'.

Rhode Island has land borders with only two other states, on the north and east with Massachusetts and in west with Connecticut, in the south the state is bounded by the straits of Block Island Sound and Rhode Island Sound. It shares a short maritime border with New York State between Block Island, RI and Long Island, NY. Narragansett Bay, an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean extends deep into the south eastern portion of the state.

The Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations was created in the 17th century. English colonists first settled on present-day Aquidneck Island (Rhode Island) in 1630s. Nearly one and a half century later, in 1776, the colony declared independence from the British Crown as the first of the thirteen original American colonies, but it was the last to sign the Constitution, so it became the 13th constituent US state.

Rhode Island is the second most densely populated state in the US (after New Jersey), with a population of 1,056,000 people (43rd in the US). Largest city and state capital is Providence (pop. 179,200, in 2015), largest metropolitan area is Providence-Warwick, RI-MA Metro with a population of 1.6 million people, approximately 600,000 inhabitants more than Rhode Island itself, because of the metro's expansion into southern Massachusetts. Other major cities are Warwick (pop. 81,700), Cranston (pop. 81,000), Pawtucket (pop. 71,600), East Providence, Woonsocket and the port city of Newport.
