In Rhode Island, we pride being the #SmallestStateBestState. We know that great things come in small packages. As the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, we know that small-scale productivity can be better than blowing money trying to find a silver bullet (just look at 38 Studios or “Cooler and Warmer”). In fact, with an independent streak so strong in our blood, we’d rather do our own thing than put all our eggs in one basket.
Our best places follow those traditions. Small, varied buildings. Forget huge highways and long commutes; give us a walk on Westminster Street downtown with Big Nazo or some RISD art project spicing up our day.
Strong Rhode Island is a place for people who like being in downtown Wakefield or Newport or Providence more than you like being stuck in traffic. Read our blog below, or catch one of our monthly City Drinks events at a downtown watering hole near you.
