Is Hawaii the smallest state?

Nope. Everybody thinks that because we're an island that we're the smallest, but Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Delaware are smaller.

Hawaii is huge compared to my home state of Rhode Island...I believe the Big Island of Hawaii alone is bigger than RI.

Not only is Rhode Island the smallest state, but it has the longest official name.
The original name of the state was "Rhode Island and Providence Plantations".
