Rhode Island



Rhode Island

The smallest state in the union, Rhode Island also has the longest official name: the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. However, it is almost always shortened to Rhode Island. While there is an island named Rhode Island, most of the state (the Providence Plantations portion) is actually connected to the mainland. Rhode Island is wedged between Connecticut and Massachusetts, with a coastline that cuts deeply into the eastern part of the state along Narragansett Bay, ensuring that no matter where you are in Rhode Island you are never far from the sea. The Atlantic Ocean has greatly influenced Rhode Island’s economy, cuisine, and culture. The quahog clam shell is the official state shell of Rhode Island. A typical preparation for quahog clams is to combine them with sausage and stuffing and then bake the mixture right in their large shells. The Ocean State also offers a unique take on clam chowder; it’s a clear-broth variation of the creamy New England kind and is often served with deep-fried clam cakes, another Rhode Island specialty.
