I live for weekend getaways especially during the summer. On a recent holiday weekend my boyfriend and I decided to go to Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. Block Island is full of sandy beaches and rocky cliffs that dot the shoreline.
The Atlantic Inn, a former boarding house built in 1879, is a quaint Victorian style bed and breakfast with a wraparound veranda offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean
Rent a bike and take in the scenic views while pedaling around the island.
The Oar, in New Harbor, is named after the hundreds of painted oars that hang from the ceiling and walls. It's a local favorite!
Mohegan Bluffs. You must descend down 141 steep steps to reach the beach, where you will find a secluded spot for swimming, a favorite among surfers. You'll also find people engaging in DIY mud treatments using the damp clay within the beach's perimeter.
WHAT I LOVED MOST
The laid back atmosphere. I could only imagine that if we stayed a bit longer we would get to know the locals by first name and they would know ours. We enjoyed our weekend so much we've decided to come back the same time next year!
