Moving To Rhode Island

Here are my top 10 Reasons to Move to Rhode Island

If you are considering moving to Rhode Island be sure to
read this first! Rode Island has a lot to offer, but is it right for you?

Rhode Island is the smallest state in the country, at just
37 miles wide by 48 miles long. Its located just1 hour from Boston, and 3 hours
from New York. Its nickname is the Ocean State. It was founded in 1636 by Roger
Williams, who was exiled from Massachusetts because of his religious
views. 

Stats:

  • Population 1.057 million
  • Median Home Prices  for a single family house, August 2019 is $295,000.
  • Closest Airport is TF Green airport in Warwick, RI, but it’s called PVD (Providence) and no one really knows why.

Top 10 Reasons To Move To Rhode Island

  1. Gorgeous views. Rhode Island is just pretty. We
    have over 400 miles of coastline and a beautiful capitol city that hosts
    Waterfires in the summer on the Providence River.
  2. The whole state just feels like a small town.
    Rhode Island is home to many festivals and fairs. From seafood, to art to Jazz,
    there are about 900 festivals held throughout the year.
  3. The food is amazing. The seafood is so good,
    that Red Lobster was unable to compete and closed its doors. Federal Hill is
    home to some of the most delicious Italian food I’ve ever tasted.
  4. The weather is for the most part, beautiful. We
    get to experience all four seasons. The winters aren’t as brutal as New Hampshire
    and Maine. But the rest of the year is great. Cool Springs, warm sunny Summers
    and beautiful Fall weather kinda makes up for January and February, in my
    opinion anyway.
  5. There are some many beaches! Rhode Island has
    400 miles of coastline, and much of that is open to the public.
  6. Rhode Island is home to many outstanding
    colleges. We have an Ivy League Brown University, Providence College (go Friars
    Basketball!!) and  Rhode Island School of
    Design just to name a few.
  7. Rhode Island has a rich history. Newport is home
    to the famous mansions that were built in the industrial revolution. Speaking
    of the Revolution, Slater Mill was the country’s first textile mill.
  8. Rhode Island is surprisingly eco friendly. It is
    the site of the country’s first offshore wind farm. Many homes utilize solar
    energy.    
  9. There are plenty of jobs. Many corporations have
    their headquarters in Rhode Island.
  10. Narraganset
    bay is our most beautiful natural resource. If you want to do any kind of
    boating, kayaking, sailing or surfing, you can find a spot in the bay. The
    shoreline is dotted with little islands like Patience and Prudence, there are
    coves to anchor in, and restaurants you can visit by boat.
