When it comes to exploring the beauty that is Block Island, Rhode Island one trip is never enough. That’s why the Block Island Ferry and Cox Media have teamed up to offer New England enthusiasts the exciting chance to win four round trip tickets and a $100 Visa gift card to spend on the island this summer.
From beautiful beaches and stunning cliffside vistas to famous lighthouses, nature trails, and Great Salt Pond, there’s no shortage of ways to celebrate the sunshine on Block Island. Visitors have their pick of activities, which include fishing, parasailing, hiking, bike riding, horseback riding and navigating the diverse selection of specialty shops offering souvenirs, antiques, and unique mementos. There are art galleries and a movie theatre for creative connoisseurs looking to get their fill while soaking up paradise. Island goers can put their feet up at a salon/spa or put their feet to work on a tennis or basketball court. Whether the trip calls for relaxation or adventure, there is something for everyone whether spending a day or enjoying an extended stay on the island.
When hunger hits, there are plenty of options to curb your cravings for a quick snack, burger from the grill or full course seafood dinner. The dining choice is vast and spans from casual bistros to fine dining establishments. The selection of pubs, taverns and cafes that stay open late into the evening hours offer island-goers plenty of options to enjoy a casual nightlife scene as well. Add to that the soundtrack of live music from local artists and the picturesque backdrop of the ocean and any meal shared is one to remember.
Block Island took shape from a glacier 10,000 years ago and has since grown to house plenty of stories within its rolling hills and visually stunning landscape. History and information buffs can learn more about the island’s quirks and fun facts by booking a guided tour, and have their pick to do so by land, air, or sea. How cool is that?
