Close To Home, A World Away
For anyone who loves the outdoors like I
do, Block Island is the place for you. From
miles of pristine beaches to our nature
trails, this truly is "one of the last great
Block Island offers endless activities for
the adventurer and is the perfect destina-
tion for those looking to relax and get away
from it all.
For the foodies, there is no shortage of
outstanding dining options. From fresh
local seafood to farm to table cuisine, you
will be pleasantly surprised by your culi-
nary experiences here.
Shoppers will love the variety of bou-
tiques and galleries in and around Old
Ferries to the island depart from Point Judith; Newport,
R.I.; Fall River, Mass.; New London, Conn.; and Montauk,
Scheduled fl ights run frequently from Westerly, R.I. It's
never been easier to explore this 7 x 3 - 1/2 mile island just
12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island.
Rent a bike, moped, or hop in a taxi for an island tour. Be
sure to see the dramatic Mohegan Bluffs,
historic lighthouses and a sunset from
Grace's Cove.
Planning to spend the night? Many inns,
hotels and guest houses offer a wide range
of accommodations. Several scenic island
locations make unforgettable venues for
weddings or group gatherings. For longer
stays, check out the weekly house rentals
offered by island real estate offi ces.
For those looking to kick up your heels,
check out the Music Festival in June or the
summer Blues on the Block concerts at the
Town Beach. Music enthusiasts will not
be disappointed with the variety of talent
passing through the pubs and nightspots
throughout the season.
Outdoor activities, music, art, dining, scenic beauty, and
accessibility -- Block Island has it all. Whether it be for a
day, a night or a week, please join us for your next getaway.
We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Block
