Guidelines For Traveling To Rhode Island

Welcome to Block Island

The Block Island Chamber of Commerce represents more than 300 island and mainland businesses that offer the highest quality products and services. Click on our Members Directory link at the top right of this page to find exactly what you’ll need while you’re on the island. Strolling and shopping in our downtown business district has become a tradition, as has staying in one of our iconic inns or hotels. If you’re looking for perfect Block Island home, one of our realtors will find it for you.

Block Island is surrounded by 21 miles of beach. Almost 50 percent of the island is preserved land; twenty-eight miles of walking trails are maintained for your use. There are acres of open space which are a haven for flora and fauna, it’s no wonder Block Island was named one of the “last great places” in the western hemisphere by The Nature Conservancy. Walking and biking are an excellent way to take in the rolling hills and stunning vistas, but that all depends on the visitor; many decide to rent a bike, car or moped, jump in a taxi, or view your surroundings in a helicopter or on horseback. The only way to travel to the island is by boat or plane. It is certainly worth the trip!  Block Island is spectacular and becomes more beautiful with each changing season.

If you are looking for an activity there is something for everyone. You can swim, kayak, paddleboard, parasail, surf, bike, go charter fishing, or relax on the beach. Browse through our unique boutiques and galleries, grab a bite to eat in one of our fine restaurants or visit the nightclubs for live entertainment.

The Block Island Chamber of Commerce is ready to help you plan your special Block Island vacation. We can assist you in your decision on where to stay on the island, where to eat, where to shop, and what to do! Call us at (401) 466-2474.

We are located at the Old Harbor Ferry Landing.  

We will see you soon!
