Weekend Happenings: Taste of Block Island

Although fall is officially upon is, the weather will be pretty summer-like here in Southern New England this weekend and there are plenty of ways to enjoy it. In particular, it’s a perfect weekend for exploring Block Island with fewer crowds than during peak summer months. Plus, the Taste of Block Island is going on Friday through Sunday.

Taste of Block Island offers visitors everything from active ventures like kayaking and horseback riding to more relaxed farm tours. There are also wine and beer tastings for foodies and wannabe foodies. Plus, shops, hotels and restaurants will be offering plenty of specials to further sweeten the deal.

The Huffington Post just named Block Island one of 7 small islands that should be on your radar, and we are BIG fans of BI here at SNEW, so we’d say this sounds like a perfect weekend getaway or even a lovely little day trip via the Block Island Ferry.
