You step off the ferry and fall in love immediately. Old town charm meets the shoreline. The sun welcomes you with a kiss on your forehead and the salty air gives you a glow. The sand is permanently wedged between your toes. Your next thought is how you wish you had booked a place to stay.
Well, lucky for you, the town’s best places to stay don’t put all their inventory on hotel booking sites. There is a good chance you can book a getaway any time of year, and you can’t beat the price if you are traveling mid week or in the shoulder seasons. Whether you want to feel at home at a B&B or be pampered at a luxury hotel, Block Island has what you are looking for. Just give the property a call directly and they will see what they can do for you. For a full list of accommodations please visit http://www.blockislandinfo.com/where-to-stay.
Staying a night or two will allow you to do some shopping, allow your taste buds to come alive at the island’s restaurants, and experience all the outdoor activities and scenic views Block Island has to offer. The island is like no other. It has terrific beaches and great hiking trails. Something better experienced within a few days rather than to try and squeeze everything in with a day trip. Plus, staying over allows you the opportunity to discover some of the most incredible sunsets and sunrises in New England (or anywhere)! If you are looking for a place to relax and recharge, Block Island may be just the place for you and a few day getaway is worth your time.
Please keep in mind that things will look a little different this year. Masks are required in all public areas, like lobbies, and breakfast will be served with creativity as buffets are not allowed under current guidelines. Please also be mindful that the CDC and the State of Rhode Island are asking that you stay 6ft apart from people whenever possible. Accommodations on Block Island are adhering to all current guidelines and best practices to ensure the safely of all guests and staff.
Now go catch that Block Island sunset.
