    Default Fun Facts

    I thought it would be fun to start a thread on fun facts about Rhode Island. I'll start.

    In 1524 the Florentine navigator Giovanni da Verrazano, while sailing for France, was the first European to explore Rhode Island. By comparing Block Island with the Mediterranean island Rhodes, he accidentally gave it its name.

    Now it's your turn. What fun fact do you have to share with us today.
