New Years

Are there any New Years Eve celebrations on Block Island? A group of 4 to 6 couples is looking to go this New Years.

1. Re: New Years

Read the Block Island Times' online edition once December gets started: http://www.blockislandtimes.com . The island has only recently caught on to the "Christmas stroll" idea and for the most part has shut down for the winter already. A few of the more high-end establishments - Atlantic Inn, Manisses Hotel & 1661 Inn, Spring House Hotel - may have something planned for New Year's. But if you're thinking in terms of something like First Night, or a lighted globe falling from the Harbor Church tower, think again!

I can tell you that there's an organized swim on New Year's morning, much as the L Street Brownies do in Boston.
