Block Island, RI

Things to do on Block Island


"Twelve miles off the Rhode Island coast lies a vacation destination often overlooked in the region's tourism sweepstakes.  But if Block Island lacks the stargazing appeal of the celebrity isles of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, the visitors who swarm off the ferries here from Memorial Day to Columbus Day appear blissfully unconcerned.  

That may be due to the island's alluring blend of so many elements that help a frazzled refugee from the working world exhale and relax. This pork chop-shaped island has gorgeous beaches, stunning ocean vistas, 32 miles of hiking trails,  250-foot-high coastal cliffs, a deep sense of history, and a lively night scene."
