This is one of the best day trips available in New England in my opinion. Only a short ferry ride from Rhode Island or Connecticut allows you to visit an incredible island that feels like historic new England, but with beaches, fishing, and temperatures that are more like the Caribbean. Day trips allow for you to visit all the major historical sites and lighthouse if you rent a moped for a portion of the day, and then hit the beaches for the other portion. Staying for a weekend or overnight I can imagine is great, however hotels book up months in advanced, evening booking for summer 2017 now is almost impossible other than some random nights mid week scattered throughout the summer.

Bars and nightlife
The Oar
Not downtown, so need to bike or moped here, but fun spot
Ballard's
This is right off the ferry and is right on the beach
The Yellow Kittens
Small but unique little bar, can walk from downtown but it is not in the main downtown area
Hotels
Block Island
The National Hotel on Block island is the large hotel you see when arriving by ferry and is right downtown. Dated rooms, but the location is great and it is also a great lunch spot
