What is not there to like about Rhode Island. Though the state may be small, there is a strong sense of community within the state. I was originally from New York City. 5 years ago I moved from the city to an area called Woonsocket, Rhode Island where still I currently live. This place, though unlike the city, has so much more to offer. I love the community here and I would say that it is the perfect place to bring up kids. This area has many amenities to offer such as local markets and local restaurants and coffee shops that promote tourism. Despite these many perks, there are a few downsides. During the summer, there will be many thunderstorm in addition to the cold weather in the season of Winter. The crime rates are also high which is something to be careful of.
I love the community here. I know all my neighbors and I say hello to them on my way to school with my 3 children. Every morning I always make a point to visit the coffee shop where the people are extremely friendly. I also make a habit of visiting the local market for fresh produce. I love the idea of supporting the local economy here in Woonsocket. There are multiple downsides to living in this area. Unfortunately, the crime rate as well as the cost of living here is quite high. At night, make a habit of locking your doors and to not leave any valuables lying around in your care just in case. Though this may seem daunting, this area is a quiet area with many shops, restaurants, and entertainment options to offer.
