Rhode Island, the smallest of the US states, isn't actually an island.

Although it takes only 45 minutes to traverse, this little wonder packs in over 400 miles of coastline with some of the finest white-sand swimming beaches in the Northeast, deserted coves, rugged seaside cliffs and isolated lighthouses.
