|Discover two of Block Island's best-kept secrets: Fall and Spring. With pristine fishing conditions, some of Rhode Island's premiere hiking, and beaches practically deserted by summer crowds, residents and visitors alike agree that there is no season like "shoulder season" on Block Island. The Fall and Spring provide the perfect opportunity to hike the Greenway, a spectacular network of trails maintained by the Nature Conservancy, which wind their way through rustic hills and valleys and also along stretches of bluff and coast that will take your breath away. Bicycling and kayaking are also enjoyed all year long. And it's never a bad day to walk the beach, read a book in front of a fireplace, or enjoy a cup of coffee at one of the local cafes. |
Don't expect a lot of nightlife and don't expect any hustle and bustle. But do come prepared for reflection, interaction with nature in its peaceful splendor, and the prettiest stretches of beaches you can find on the East Coast.
