Rhode Island is the smallest but second most densely populated state in the country. Additionally, about 14 percent of its area is actually water. While it doesn't have the expansion opportunities of the West, it's slightly more affordable than its New England neighbors, despite the relatively high taxes. Home styles range from Cape Code and colonial to modern and trendy.
Rhode Island is home to just over one million people. Most residents live throughout the urban sprawl surrounding Narragansett Bay. Providence is the state capital and the focal point of Rhode Island. Most new construction in the city consists of modern high rises and multi-family buildings. Other major cities include Pawtucket, Cranston, Warwick and North Kingstown. Many of the larger cities and towns are further separated into smaller villages. The communities west of Providence offer the most affordable living in the state and are made up of mostly three- and four-bedroom homes. Higher prices are found south of the Quonset Point Naval base throughout the islands that scatter the lower part of the bay. Jamestown is the most expensive community in the state, followed by Newport on Aquidneck Island. This is the largest island in the bay, and it also has the highest concentration of colonial homes in the country. Many of these properties have been converted into historic museums.
Rhode Island's economy is rooted in fishing, textiles and jewelry making, but most jobs today are in the service sector. Healthcare is the largest industry in the state, followed by tourism and manufacturing. Electrical equipment, ship products, machinery and fabricated metals are some of the primary products. Rhode Island is home to several Fortune 500 companies, including Citizen's Financial Group, CVS Caremark and Textron. The state government is the largest employer, with nearly 15,000 employees on payroll. Lifespan Hospital Group comes in second, followed by the federal government and Care New England.
