25th Anniversary on May 2!

Has anyone been to Block Island in early May? I wonder if we'll get bored with everything closed. We like hiking, but none of the reviews here have mentioned that as an activity. Surely we won't want to spend time on the beach!

What do you think?

Block Island in May is just a nice as in the summer. There are plenty of hiking trails (called Greenway Trails) through Rodmans Hollow or up around and along Mansion Beach. The island is a "getaway" from everyday life and if treated that way, Block Island can be a paradise no matter when you visit.

We went late April once for our anniversary and we had pretty good weather for that time of year. The hotel ( I think it was the 1661 Inn) was very nice, we had a beautiful Ocean view room. We ate at the Spring House and food was great. We don't bike or hike and lots of shops were closed, so we were a little bored. I guess it really depends on what activities you like and what kind of weather you get. Early May could go either way with the weather, better be prepared with a good book just in case. We did drive around the Island a lot and visited a couple beaches and the lighthouses.
