This 3-by-7 mile island is lined with beaches and they’re all free and open to the public. You can also spend time shopping at one of the many specialty shops or enjoy outdoor activities such as horseback riding and snorkeling. 

Block Island has a little but of everything to suit every type of traveler. 

The Outer Banks is located along the coast of North Carolina and is a popular summer destination. From beaches to state parks, the Outer Banks is great for an island getaway. 

Vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard isn’t just for the rich and famous! There are plenty of budget-friendly ways to enjoy this island. Located south of Cape Cod, a getaway on Martha’s Vineyard will be filled with exquisite seafood, lighthouses, and sandy beaches.
