Rhode Island is the smallest state in the United States of America. It borders Connecticut to the west, Massachusetts to the north and east, and it shares a water border (Town of New Shoreham) with the state of New York. It has the typical New England climate (4 seasons, most of them being very mild), Beautiful ocean beaches, and more coastline per person than any other state in the country. Rhode Island is served by three interstate highways (Interstate 95, Interstate 195, and Interstate 295) one passenger rail line (Amtrak's Northeast Corridor) and one major airport (Theodore Francis Greene). Rhode Island's largest city is Providence, which is also the one, and only capital although at one point this was an honor shared with the city of Newport, a major trading port in earlier centuries. Topography of Rhode Island is basic, flat mixed forest in the southern reaches of the state, rocky hills in the northwest, and the Blackstone River Valley and Naragansett Bay covers most of the middle. Rhode Island is notorious for bad drivers, strage local quirks (Clam Cakes, Clam Chowder and Dels Lemonade) and an uninteligable dialect "Roe Dylanese"
