Block Island, Rhode Island

Only a short ferry ride from the mainland, Block Island offers the quintessential island experience. Think food and drinks overlooking the ocean, boutique-lined streets, spectacular natural sights and some of the most unspoiled white sand beaches in the country. Hop on a bike or moped and get exploring charming streets, dramatic cliffs, quiet beaches and pristine nature trails.
