My laptop died on me last week, so the post I was planning on publishing today is locked in a dead MacBook Air.
In the meantime, I am re-posting all of my favorites places to go on Block Island. I posted it too late last year (August 28th) so this timing is actually better! Next week I hope to be back up and running and will start chatting about the August 11th Block Island House Tour that I am on…..
Clothes, jewelry, home, garden, bath and body. A little bit of everything in this adorable jewel box of a store.
Cannot stay away from this restaurant! Go early or have a drink at the bar while you wait.
Twin Maples Bait and Tackle
Favorite T-shirt on the island. EAT FISH!
The Ice Cream Place
Yup, we are probably here way too much in the summer. But we LOVE it!
Block Island Club
The vortex. Where I met so many of my friends. Where sailing and swimming lessons introduced my kids to their lifelong best friends.
Anyone visiting the island can join for a week or more. A true gem since 1963.
Payne Farm Stand
Island owned, on Lakeside Drive, the cutest little farm stand ever.
The Atlantic Inn
Our FAVORITE place on the island for a cocktail. Outside, with a view and a sunset. Can’t beat that.
The Empire Theatre
Built in 1882, this historic theatre has a brand new digital projector and all of the current movies. But I would see a movie here no matter what. Charming and lovingly restored by Gary Pollard, this is a must see.
The Bagel Shop
A staple. Iced coffee, bagels, giant muffins, fabulous sandwiches. You will definitely be here if you visit Block Island!
Blocks of Fudge
A good, old-fashioned candy store.
Abrams Animal Farm
My daughter and her alpaca friends…..
The Farmer’s Market
The Block Island Farmer’s Market takes place every Wednesday and Saturday. Everything is either grown or made on the island. If you are here and don’t visit the Farmer’s Market, then you have truly missed something!
Block Island North Light
Need I say more?
