Block Island

Among the best day trips from Connecticut is Block Island. Block Island, a 9.7-square-mile island off the coast of Rhode Island, lies about 14 miles from Montauk Point on Long Island. It seems like going back in time to visit this Rhode Island treasure. Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindebergh, and Presidents Eisenhower, Roosevelt, and Clinton all used Block Island as a getaway. One of the most popular activities is to enjoy a lobster roll while watching the boats enter the harbor from the National Hotel's long, covered patio. Exploring Main Street is so much fun because it is teeming with unique stores and eateries.

In the late afternoon, it is always nice to relax on the beach after visiting the iconic Block Island Lighthouse. Besides walking, one of the best ways to get around the island is by bike, so if you are energetic, try taking one around the island, the scenery is stunning. At the end of the day, if you have worked up a thirst for shopping or biking you might want to unwind on the terrace enjoying a cocktail and the gentle sea breeze. Perhaps a day excursion is not long enough after all!
