With its turquoise waters, natural expanses and Victorian charm, Block Island
is a one-of-a-kind destination. Enjoy these photos from a Block Island summer day.
Block Island was settled by 16 families, who left Boston in 1661 and arrived at their new island home in the spring of 1662. The names of these original Block Islanders are inscribed on Settlers' Rock, a monument located near the island's north end.
