Twelve miles off Rhode Island’s southern shoreline sits Block Island, a charming island community eagerly awaiting your arrival.
Arrive by ferry (departing from Point Judith on the mainland) and spot fishermen heading out to sea during your journey. Stroll through Old Harbor, where you’ll find shops and restaurants worthy of the ferry trip. If you feel like investigating the island further, rent a moped or bicycle and reach the many beaches and dramatic sea cliffs.
