See this iconic lighthouse on the shores of Block Island.
This lighthouse was made out of granite and was built in the late 1800s. A previous version of the lighthouse was made of brick, but since it was too close to the sandy beaches, it was sadly washed away. Visitors are welcome to walk inside the first floor and view the maritime museum featuring 5 different rooms that portray some of the histories of the area.
During July and August, it is open full time but you can also visit on the weekends during the rest of the year. The views from this coast are amazing, and you can even see harbor seals hanging out on the shore during the day. Feel free to walk around the outside for some coastal views and be sure to bring a camera with you to capture the awesome sights of the Atlantic Ocean. This is a neat place that can help you feel closer to nature as you walk along the secluded beachfront. Venture out to this historic lighthouse if you have the chance to visit Rhode Island.
