Although I usually don't admit it, I really do love Rhode Island. Here are a few of my favorite things.

- Spike's Junkyard Dogs. I love this place. If you like hot dogs you will love it too. Lunch here is a must when you are in Providence. They have things besides hot dogs on the menu but I have stayed true to my favorite - the Texas Ranger. It's a hot dog with BBQ sauce, bacon and cheddar. Also, the buns they use are amazing.
- Del's. Who doesn't love frozen lemonade? Del's is a Rhode Island tradition that I can get behind.
- The Providence Mall Movie Theater. The theater has IMAX, it doesn't have crazy stupid NYC ticket prices, and I'll save the best thing for last. It has a bar! Have you ever seen a movie theater with a bar in it? I haven't. I was shocked and amazed (in a good way). I love how Providence shows its true colors. Way to keep it classy.
- The state is the size of my big toenail. As much as tease Rhode Islanders for living in the smallest state it is really a great thing. You can easily do anything the state has to offer (which is a lot) because at most it takes 40 minutes to get anywhere. It takes me longer than 40 minutes to get to Brooklyn. A perfect example of this is Jamestown. We ate clam cakes (another Rhode Island tradition), walked on the beach, and saw people surfing and fishing. You can completely get away from the city without having to go far.
