Block Island:
Block Island, RI


Serenity is the word I’d use to describe the 17 mile Island accessible by air or through a ferry. The Point Judith Ferry is located only half an hour from Newport. The ferry ride takes half an hour.

There is no way to drive a car to Block Island, although it is possible to take it on the ferry. There are very few cars on the Island. There are bike rentals, moped rentals and small electric cars for rent to use to get around on the beach lined island.

There are two beautiful lighthouses to visit or you can just rent a boat to enjoy near the island. There is also a small airport. Just sitting and relaxing is special on this relaxing island. There are hotels and inns where you can stay the night in order to enjoy the next day on the beautiful Island.
