Block Island - Block Island Tourism Council - virtual view of this beautiful island.
Described by the Nature Conservancy as "one of the last great places on earth." It's a hideaway so breathtaking you won't want to leave.
Block Island is truly Nature's Treasure on the Sea, offering an unspoiled rural setting where a visitor can feel
like they have stepped back to a gentler, quieter time. The Island offers a rich history, miles of sandy beaches
and wealth of activities including fishing, boating, biking, swimming, walking and some of the best bird watching in the country.
Block Island - New Shoreham - Block Island Chamber of Commerce
There's a story about a visitor who went into a café on the island and asked some of the regulars where the
beach was. Four of the patrons turned around and each pointed in a different direction. Well, they all got it
right. Perhaps the real reason Block Island was put on this earth was to make sure everybody gets enough
beach time. More than 350 freshwater ponds (from natural springs) and 17 miles of beach invite you to jump
in the surf, spend a lazy afternoon building a sandcastle or burying Dad in sand. Indulge in the novel you've never finished, or just take a snooze.

The Town is bounded on the East by Narragansett Bay and four hills roll up from the coast to the West
Greenwich town line. The downtown area of East Greenwich was initially settled to support the surrounding
farming area. As the town grew, so did the commercial center. The protected cove brought trade ships from the far corners of the world and gave safe harbor to local fishermen.

The Providence and Rhode Island Cookbook : Big Recipes from the Smallest State
By Linda Beaulieu
Celebrate the state's biggest flavors with recipes such as : South County Chicken Potpie, Lobster and
Asparagus Agnolotti, Lobster and Corn Fritters, Glocester Cranberry Apple Pie, Rhode Island Indian Meal Cornbread, Narragansett Strudel and Block Island Monkfish Wrapped in Bacon.
Rhode Islanders have an ongoing fascination with food. Some attribute this to the state's ethnic mix: a large
Italian population that has an inherent love of food, wine, and the good life; people of French and Portuguese
descent, whose ancestral recipes are now a part of Rhode Island cuisine; and the Native Americans who
were the first to use the bounty of the sea and land to prepare their meals. Whatever the reasons, Rhode
Island's food traditions are steeped in history and today are part of a vibrant food subculture. In The
Providence and Rhode Island Cookbook, author Linda Beaulieu explores the food of the Ocean State, especially in and around Providence, and reveals how such a small state can have so many big flavors.
With more than 200 recipes and engaging sidebars about food, local lore, and state history, this book
celebrates the dishes and culinary terms that are unique to Rhode Island. Home cooks will learn how to make
their own Wimpy Skippys (spinach pies) or Zeppoles, and visitors will discover what a quahog is, how a cabinet can fit neatly in their hand, and why an Awful, Awful isn't awful at all.
