Close To Home, A World Away
Take a step back in time when you visit Block Is-
land, Rhode Island. Whether your idea of an escape
from day to day life includes relaxing on the beach
with a good book, going on a vigorous bike ride, or
kayaking through pristine waters, Block Island is the
place for you.
Natural, beautiful scenery is everywhere you turn.
This is probably why Block Island is the perfect lo-
cation for weddings and special events. Guests will
enjoy a lifetime of unforgettable memories after at-
tending an event hosted on this quaint little island.
Dining is a reason in itself for a visit. Restaurants
offer everything from the freshest seafood to diverse
ethnic cuisine. The Farmers' Market held twice a

cacies but also one-of-a-kind local artist creations.
Old Harbor -- our Business and Historic Dis-
tricts-- are home to a wide range of shopping and
places to stay. All are just a short walk from the ferry
Block Island, at just seven miles by three and a half
miles, is located twelve miles off the coast of Rhode

far away from the mainland's hustle and bustle, but
it's a quick ferry ride from Newport or Point Judith,
Fall River, MA, New London, CT, and Montauk, NY.
Flights from Westerly, RI take just fi fteen minutes.

us on beautiful Block Island!
