fun stuff to do during your stay

Our family has been sailing to Block Island for a long time. Here are our favorite things to do and fun places to visit:

  • Grab a beer, hit the sand, and watch some live music at Ballards
  • Hunt for beach glass and go fishing on Coast Guard Beach
  • Walk the marinas and grab some grub at The Oar
  • Shop downtown and grab an ice cream
  • Go horseback riding on the beach

Block Island is more than its crazy downtown- rent a moped or bike around the island to see its nature, beauty, and tranquility.
