3. Chasing Sunrise and Sunset

There is nothing better than waking up with the sun before the daily summer hustle and bustle begins to catch the sunrise. The sunsets are also a sight to see, to say the least! There are many people that claim they've never seen a better sunset than right here on Block Island...we'll let you be the judge!
