The Victorian-era buildings in Old Harbor, Block Island, recall a more laid-back time when people would sit on covered porches and take in the view of the Atlantic. Named one of the last great places on earth, Block Island is a must-see destination for anyone who visits Rhode Island. Stay for a day (or for a week!) and take in the sights of this beautiful island, which you can only get to by ferry. Quaint shops, delicious restaurants, fun bars and nightclubs, and water-related activities abound in a place with no chain restaurants and no traffic lights.
