Block Island is laid back so the accommodations 'on island' are also easy going and 'unfussy'. And you'll find no chain hotels like Marriott or Holiday Inn, no chain restaurants like Applebee's or McDonalds, no chain stores like Home Depot or CVS, and no traffic lights. There are few places on earth that are still like Block Island - nature's paradise with just a bit more than the bare necessities. We strongly recommend coming without your car -- like most people do -- and enjoying walking or bicycling everywhere. There are also plenty of taxis to take you to the more remote spots out of town.
