Rhode Island’s South County: Quirky Cuisine, Great Fishing
   


In the part of Rhode Island far south of Newport and Providence, an accent predominates. You hear people cheering for the Celtics and the Red Sox in the bars in a distinct Southern Mass/RI accent.

Think Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in Good Will Hunting, or those lovable Tappet Brothers on NPR’s Car Talk.That’s what I’m hearing, about bahbah shops and cahs. Love it.

Rhode Island is the tiniest state in the US (at just 1,214 square miles, smaller even than Delaware!). Within its diminutive borders, with giant Narragansett Bay in the middle, surrounded by Massachusetts, Connecticut and lots of ocean to the south. The only big city, Providence is up in the north.
