Block Island Travel Guide

Block Island is right next to Rhode Island mainland and is said to be one of the most beautiful little islands in the area. Named after the Dutch explorer Adriaen Block, Block Island boasts old architecture, beautiful scenery and fresh air, making it a perfect spot for hiking, biking, sailing and fishing. During summer the beaches tend to be busy but overcrowded -- the island never sees the same crowds as Rhode Island mainland.

This island has one of the best 4th of July celebrations and so sees people travel from around the states to watch the fireworks and feel the holiday spirit.
