When GoLocalProv carefully revised its ranking formula to provide a greater emphasis on school performance, as well as ranking a community's Restaurants & Bars as separate from its Arts & Culture quotient, there were bound to be changes in the 3rd annual look at Rhode Island's Best Communities. That, with fresh data on housing, income, crime, and school performance, made some changes in the rankings dramatic. This year, the Top 10 reflects a wonderful diversity of all Rhode Island has to offer: from the two largest cities in the state, to top contenders from West Bay, East Bay, and of course South County, from suburbanesque towns to truly rural outposts. There are ponds, oceans, and rivers running through them, and lots of personality. Meet this year's Top 10 Best Communities in Rhode Island.
