Ideas for a Block Island Day Trip


Block Island Day Trip

The barrier islands of North Carolina are a popular tourist destination because of the long stretches of unspoiled beaches. But touring the gorgeous lighthouses on Outer Banks is a top thing to do there too.

Rent a bicycle or moped

The best way to explore the island's scenic roads is on a bike or moped. There are plenty of places throughout town with great biking opportunities.

See the animals at Abrams Animal Farm

Not far from the ferry drop-off is Abrams Animal Farm. You can feed the animals there, which is lots of fun! But, there's more than just animals at this farm. There is a small shop where you can get clothing and gifts.

Relax at the beach

Take time out of your day at one of the many beaches on the island. The Fred Benson Town Beach has plenty of parking, changing areas, and showers.

Visit the Southeast Lighthouse

Built in 1874, the Southeast Lighthouse became a designated US national historic landmark in 1997. But there's more to this location than just the lighthouse.

Explore the Mohegan Bluffs

This is probably one of the most popular destinations on block island. It's rare that you don't see an image of these beautiful bluffs when a friend visits Block Island.

A one day getaway to Block Island is the perfect way to enjoy everything the island has to offer.
