Rhode Island Topography

Rhode Island was named after the Greek island of Rhodes.  Rhode Island's low-lying terrain along the coast makes it vulnerable to storms and flooding.  Small lakes and bays dot the forested rural landscape, where diary and poultry farming is a way of life.  Tourists enjoy visiting the mansions in Newport as well as Samuel Slater's cotton mill in Pawtucket.  For Rhode Island travel and tourism information, visit the official Rhode Island tourism site and Rhode Island Atlas.
