Making Innovation Central to Rhode Island's Future Gina M. Raimondo, Governor

Quality of Life

Rhode Island is a wonderful place to work, live and raise a family. Within the 1,000 square miles we call home, you will find walkable city and town centers close to working farmlands, forested areas and the incomparable resource that is Narragansett Bay. A vibrant arts scene, award-winning theatre, collegiate, professional and international sports competitions, outdoor concerts, international festivals, celebrated museums and acclaimed dining establishments mix with miles of pristine coastline, hundreds of salt and freshwater beaches and one of the largest concentrations of historic landmarks in the nation. And getting around is easy. Our Capital City of Providence is never more than a 30-minute drive from anywhere in the state — from the beaches of South County to the City-by-the-Sea, Newport, to the farms and bucolic beauty of Northwestern Rhode Island.
