ACTIVITIES - Catch a car ferry to the island year-round from Galilee. Ferries also depart from Providence and Newport from late June through early September. Reservations for ferries from Galilee and Providence should be made a week in advance. For information, call 401-789-3502 or 401-421-4050.

Enjoy a picnic and go saltwater fishing and swimming in Block Island Sound. Concessions are available. Watch for the many birds flying along the Atlantic Flyway, especially in the spring and fall. Take a hike to Rodman's Hollow, one of the island's five wildlife refuges, to see a deep, cool ravine left behind by glaciers.

Visit Mohegan Bluffs that rise approximately 200 feet above the sea. The Southeast Lighthouse, circa 1875, which is located on the bluffs, has the most powerful electric beacon on the eastern U.S. coast. North Light is located at Sandy Point on the island's northern tip.

Settlers' Rock is on the shore of Cow Cove. The monument lists the names of Block Island's first settlers who landed here in April 1661.

 

Follow the Maze, an 11-mile path that meanders through pine forests to emerge at cliffs at the northeast end of the island.

 

Incoming pilots can land at Block Island State Airport, located one mile west of the city. Rental cars are available.
