We don't have a very strong sense of community here. There are people who have lived in the neighborhood since they were children, so they still talk to each other, but that's about it. The neighborhood is very pet friendly. Almost everyone has a pet.

The houses are one family houses. They are nice quality, but they are almost a century old, if not ever the century. Because I live on the Cranston/ Providence city line, the Cranston section is a little nicer.
Rhode I sland is also referred to as the ocean state because of its many beaches especially the historical city of Newport with its attractive mansions.

Block island, an unspoiled island, is also an important touristic attraction especially because easily reached by ferry.

The festival like the Waterfire festival attracts many, the Roger Williams Park zoo named the finest one in New england ans the Performing of arts in providence are very appealing features of rhode island
