I took the ferry from New London, Connecticut, to Block Island on a sultry July day in 2007 and had a wonderful opportunity to meet islanders and discover this offshore hideaway's many charms. In these photos from my visit, you'll see some of Block Island's most famous and fetching sights.
With ferry rates to Block Island as low as $20.75 for a same day round-trip as of 2012, an escape to this offshore paradise is an affordable option for New England travelers. As you'll see, I really managed to pack experiences into my one day on Block Island.
