At the very end of the Narragansett strip of incredible beaches and surf - make the time to visit the old fishing village of Galilee - where you take the ferry to Block Island. Not much to say about all the fried food- but nice harbor and beach

My wife and I visited Galilee to see some of the Rhode Island coast and to eat lunch at George's. We enjoyed viewing the boats and ferry going and coming through the harbor. In October, there is little activity, yet on a sunny day it is a real treat to have the town to your self and a few others.

Galilee fishing village in Naragansett R.I. is a small but busy place. Lots of restaurants, live music and Salty Brine Beach. Also it is the main Ferry pickup to Block Island. They have also the express block island ferry. There's also a few gift shops in Galilee. Love this place! I've been going there for 25 plus years.

One of the largest fishing community in New England. When the fish is being processed , you can smell that you are in a fishing area.

This is a small working harbor town with fishing boats and the Block Island Ferry calling it home. There are plenty of gift shops, a nice beach with a rock jetty, and views of the ships coming and going down the channel from many vantage points. For a relaxed laid back afternoon, we did lunch on the deck at George's... More

Planned on staying the night but when we saw how nasty the hotel was and that there really wasn't anything to do but drink all day we chose to head to Providence, RI. Luckily the hotel was nice enough to give us a full refund.

We enjoyed our walk around Galilee on a sunny afternoon. Pretty harbor & boat views. Lots of gift shops. Allow a couple of hours to stroll, shop and relax. Not a large village, but scenic.

Galilee had more of a sentimental value for me more than anything as we spent many nights here eating seafood and watching the boats go by. It was nice to take my children to experience the same Gets very busy on the weekend and parking can be tough so plan ahead. Beach access right next to George's restaurant It is... More

Basically Galilee is a fishing port and the place to get the Block Island Ferry. There's a channel where you can watch boats entering and leaving the harbor. You can buy lobster and crabs right off the boat or at the seafood stores. Of course there are at least 4 restaurants to meet different tastes. There is also a very... More

We have been coming here as a family for years and we always enjoy it. The beach front did get smaller over the years, so it gets really crowded. So do the restaurants, around the beach, around dinner time, so we try to eat before the rush hour, esp. with kids. The ice cream store on the bottom of one... More
