If you want to sit and watch the fishing boats this is the place. Have fried clams or ice cream and be happy. Parking at certain times of the year is stressful.

Stop in Galilee before heading off to Block Island. Cute shops and fun restaurants! Nice to have a quick cocktail and bite to eat. Very friendly and reasonably priced.

Went during peak season so it was crowded in a such a small area.However, I was still able to enjoy the sights. Watching the fishing boats going in and out was enjoyable. Delicious fresh food is abundant in the area. There's also a beach.

Galilee is RI's largest fishing port. It's fun to see the fishing boats come in and unload their fish or lobsters. There are also local fish markets where you can buy the fresh fish, lobsters and more. You can also catch the Block Island Ferry...More

A quaint fishing village with quite a few places to dine both sitting down and being served and walking up and ordering. Scenic views and some beautiful homes. You can get the Block Island Ferry here.
