Moving to Rhode Island

Don’t be fooled by its small size: Rhode Island, or The Ocean State, as it is also known, has always played an important role in the history of the United States — including being the first colony to renounce its allegiance to Britain and being the state that pushed the United States towards the Industrial Revolution!

Rhode Island shares its borders with important states in the New England region, including Massachusetts and Connecticut. If you’re thinking of moving to the smallest state in the U.S., we’re here to help you! Check out our complete guide on moving to Rhode Island!

Pros and Cons

Just like every other state in America, or any place on the planet, moving to Rhode Island has its pros and cons. Whether one outweighs the other, it’s up to you to decide — but here are 7 advantages and 7 disadvantages of moving to Rhode Island:

Pros

  • Close to major states: Rhode Island shares its borders with two major states in the region, Connecticut and Massachusetts. On top of that, New York City is only 3 hours away from Providence!
  • Crime rates: Among all fifty states, Rhode Island is #7 when it comes to public safety, and has a violent crime rate that is well below the national average.
  • Lots of activities: Whether you prefer going on hikes or spending the day at the beach, you’ll find that Rhode Island has it all!
  • Short distances: One of the best aspects about Rhode Island is that this state is so small you can get pretty much anywhere without having to drive very far!
  • Architecture: If architecture is something you’re interested in, you’ll get to see beautiful buildings and houses all over Rhode Island.
  • Ocean State: Rhode Island was given this nickname for a reason: almost 14% of its area is covered in beautiful waters!
  • Environment: The State of Rhode Island has the best air and water quality in the country — and it only dumps 349 pounds of industrial toxins in the air, way below the national average of 1,015 pounds per square mile!

Cons

  • Weather: Just like its fellow states in the New England region, Rhode Island can experience scorching hot summers and snowy winters.
  • Cost of living: Similarly to its border states, Massachusetts and Connecticut, Rhode Island has one of the highest cost-of-living rates in the country!
  • Taxes: When it comes to tax-paying, Rhode Island is one of the least friendly states in America — especially for retirees.
  • Traffic: Because of its small size, the traffic in Rhode Island can be pretty intense.
  • Mountains: Unlike other states in the New England region, Rhode Island is mostly flat. If you want to visit a mountain, you’ll have to drive to Massachusetts.
  • Not so friendly: According to some Rhode Island residents, the people in this state can be quite unfriendly at times.
  • Infrastructure: Rhode Island has the worst transportation among all fifty states, according to reports on the best states in America. On top of that, the percentage of roads in poor conditions is above the average in the Ocean State.

Fun Facts

St. Mary’s Catholic Church is the oldest parish in Rhode Island, and it is famously known for being the church where John F. Kennedy got married to former first lady Jackie Kennedy

A state with such an extensive history is certainly bound to have plenty of fun and interesting facts! One of the original thirteen colonies, Rhode Island is home to over 40 miles of shoreline, was the set location for commercially and culturally-successful films, and is also the birthplace of famous artists. Here are 8 fun facts about Rhode Island:

  1. Smallest state: Rhode Island is the smallest state in the U.S.A., at only 37 miles wide and 48 miles long!
  2. Just a few counties: Considering its small size, it’s no surprise that the state of Rhode Island only has five counties, and none of them have a local government.
  3. No prohibition: Back in the 20th century, Rhode Island was the only American state to reject the 18th amendment, which prohibited the manufacturing and selling of alcoholic drinks.
  4. Kennedy wedding: On top of being the oldest parish in Rhode Island, St. Mary’s was also the place where John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy got married.
  5. Longest name: Just like its shoreline (which is approximately 380 miles long), Rhode Island’s official name is so long that it’s considered the longest official state name in America: it’s called the “State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations”.
  6. Bill of Rights: Back when the first U.S. Constitution was being created, Rhode Island was the last state to ratify it, as they refused to ratify a constitution without a bill of rights!
  7. Oldest synagogue: Rhode Island is home to the oldest synagogue in North America, the Touro Synagogue in Newport.

Funny State Laws

When in Rhode Island, horse-riders should remain aware that it’s forbidden by law to race on highways

It’s safe to say that every state has at least one or two funny laws. Though we’re sure they weren’t meant to be funny when they were first created, these laws seem weird and always make us wonder why they were created in the first place! Here are 5 funny laws in the state of Rhode Island:

  • No biting: If you’re in the Ocean State, please keep in mind that biting one’s limbs off is illegal! We’re not sure why someone would do that, or why this law was created, but it’s better to be safe than sorry!
  • Highway Horse: Do you have a horse? Beware: you’re legally forbidden to test your horse’s speed when you’re in Rhode Island!
  • Transparent clothes: If you’re into wearing transparent clothing items, don’t do that in Rhode Island! It’s illegal to wear transparent clothes in this state.
  • Sales on Sunday: Store owners are forbidden by law to sell toothpaste and toothbrushes to the same client on Sundays.

Weather and Climate

The weather in Rhode Island is similar to that of other states in the New England region: it can be harsh during the winter, but it’s quite pleasant during the other seasons

Similar to its neighboring states (Massachusetts and Connecticut), the climate in Rhode Island is classified as humid continental. This classification means that the Ocean State has hot summers and snowy winters — the temperature can go as high as 100 °F during the summer, while it can drop to 15 °F in the winter. An interesting characteristic of Rhode Island’s climate is that it’s not unusual for weather and the temperature to change drastically throughout the day. If you’re in Rhode Island anytime between November and February, you’ll experience a harsh cold and occasional blizzards. Now, if you’re in the Ocean State from June to August, you’ll get to see hot, sunny days — which makes this a great period to visit one of the beaches in Rhode Island!

Nature

Rhode Island is also known as the ‘Ocean State’ thanks to its extensive shoreline — almost 14% of the state is covered in water!

Let’s face it: we’re all so immersed in modernity that it can be hard to even think about disconnecting from the world for at least a day. However, there’s nothing more refreshing and healing than spending some time connecting with nature instead. If you’re moving to Rhode Island, you’ll have the opportunity to visit beautiful beaches. Though this small state doesn’t have mountains, you can still visit some gorgeous cliffs — not to mention the amazing rivers and ponds all over the place! Here are 5 places in Rhode Island that you must visit:

  1. The Blackstone River
  2. Mohegan Bluffs
  3. Stepstone Falls
  4. Osamequin Nature Trails and Bird Sanctuary
  5. Ell Pond

Natural Disasters

No state is safe from natural disasters, unfortunately. However, some are more affected by different events than others, and that is the case in Rhode Island — this state is not affected by natural disasters as often as other states. To this day, Hurricane Bob (which affected a great part of the New England region) remains one of the worst disasters in Rhode Island’s history. According to data, there are several parts of Rhode Island that are more vulnerable to the different types of natural disasters, including Providence and Newport. Here are the most common natural disasters in Rhode Island:

  • Hurricanes
  • Thunderstorms
  • Blizzards
  • Floods

No matter where you’re moving, it’s highly likely you’ll have to spend quite a lot of money.

    1. If you submit a Quote Request, we will share the information you have provided with Vendors who may be able to provide Relocation Services to you. Although Vendors have agreed to protect your personally identifiable information pursuant to privacy standards which are at least as restrictive as the terms of this Privacy Policy, we do not and cannot control the use of your information after it is transmitted to the Vendor and cannot guarantee that the Vendor will not disclose, sell or use your information in a manner that you do not anticipate. You therefore must contact the Vendor if you have any questions or concerns regarding their use of your information.
    2. Your Quote Request may include an opportunity to participate in our direct marketing program or additional offers available in the Quote Request. If you opt-in to our direct marketing program or additional offers, we will share your information with third-party marketers and service providers for the purposes of marketing and advertising their products and services to you. After we share your information with such third-party marketers, we do not and cannot control the third-party marketers’ subsequent use or disclosure of your information and cannot guarantee that they will not disclose, sell or use your information in a manner that you do not anticipate. You therefore must contact the third-party marketers if you have any questions or concerns regarding their use of your information.
    3. We may also use the information you provide in your Quote Request to (i) contact you about your satisfaction with the Site, whether you obtained Relocation Services from any Vendor through the Site, the identity of any such Vendor, and your satisfaction with the Relocation Services provided by such Vendor, and (ii) to send you information and promotional messages about our associated products and services, or the products or services that we offer on this Site or on our other websites.
