The natural environment of Block Island provides the perfect place for parents and kids to spend “quality time”.
The beaches and walking trails are perfect for exploration. In fact “Baby Beach” near town has soft waves and clean sand, attracting people with younger children. Older children can ride the waves just up the beach or search the tide pools for treasures.
There are nature walks and story times at the library. View sea creatures in water tanks and learn about bird banding. Go to fishing camp and get your dinner. Take a kayak ride or a fishing trip.
There is no amusement park or fast food restaurant. There are two very rustic movie theaters that operate at night or on a rainy afternoon. It’s a place to make your own fun and play board games.
In other words, Block Island is a step back in time – a memorable vacation experience for all.
