Day 1 - Block Island Breeze
Welcome to Block Island, Nature’s Treasure of the Sea, offering an unspoiled rural setting where a visitor can feel like they have stepped back to a gentler, quieter time where there are no traffic lights or automobiles on the island. The Island offers a rich history, miles of sandy beaches, and over two hundred fresh water ponds that dot the island.
Your ferry departs from Point Judith, RI. The comfortably furnished boat with enclosed passenger area, cocktail bar, and galley will transport you to this island located just 12 miles off the Rhode Island coast.
Enjoy an elegant luncheon at the National Hotel. Pre-select Crispy skin-on Pan Fried Chicken Breast, Baked New England Scrod or Seafood Cake, made with Crab, Scallops and Shrimp. Your meal also includes Salad, Bread & butter, Starch and Vegetable, Coffee and Dessert.
Your guided tour of the island will highlight the picturesque scenery. It is one of bluffs and gently rolling hills, grassy moors and bayberry covered fields. You’ll learn tales of island life from your local historian. So, just sit back and enjoy the views and narration.
There is time to discover Block Island’s beauty on your own. There are many unique shops, a wonderful beach, and endless natural beauty to round out your special island experience.
