Fall For an Island Getaway On Block Island

Author: Champlin's Team

As Labor Day fast approaches and summer crowds begin to wine down, Block Island will soon transform into a quaint island getaway for the fall months. With all your favorite Block Island activities still available but with a more relaxed atmosphere and (some even argue) more beautiful sunsets to soak in, it's the perfect time of year to experience Block Island.

Explore Block Island Without The Crowds

Seeking a quaint fall getaway before winter sets in? An autumn escape to Block Island is just for you! A quintessential island experience, Block Island doesn’t shut down after Labor Day - in fact, all your favorite attractions (including our hotel, marina, and dockside restaurants!) stay open through Columbus Day. This means you can enjoy everything you love about the island without the summer crowds. And surprise: there’s something for everyone!

For the sun-worshipers: The water is still warm enough for swimming and finding your perfect spot on the sand won't be a problem. Once you’ve soaked up some Vitamin D, head downtown and shop the charming Water Street, offering the island’s largest collection of local boutiques, art galleries, local souvenir shops, clothing stores, book shops, specialty food stores, and more.

For the adventurers: Explore the stunning hiking trails that take you all over the island, including North Lighthouse on Sandy Point where the ground floor serves as a history museum. This end of the island in particular offers some of the best walking trails along the coastline and some of the best posts to see seals hanging along the shoreline.

For the foodies: Create your own food and drink tour downtown or right here at Champlin’s! With 4 food and beverage options to experience at our 9-acre property, it’s easy to stroll over to any of our dockside restaurants. Enjoy ‘off the grill’ fare from The Galley House Deck, world famous mudslides from Pier 76 Dock Bar overlooking the Great Salt Pond, housemade pizza from Cafe Boutique, and top it off with a sweet treat or scoop of ice cream from The Sugar Shack!

For those who love Halloween: Join a full moon stroll at the Block Island Island Full Moon Cemetery Tour With Lanterns on September 20th, held by the Block Island Historical Society.

New England boaters know that just because Labor Day has passed doesn't mean that boating season is over! The September weather is still warm but with lower humidity levels, making it ideal boating conditions before hauling your vessel for the winter season. Whether you're looking to tie up for the night and explore the island or just stopping in to fuel up, grab a bite to eat and sip on one last mudslide, we're excited to welcome you all fall long.
