“Interesting town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

They have two main businesses: a real fishing port, with all the support services (fish processing, shipping, boat maintenance), and the Block Island Ferry. The ferry generates a ton of tourist business. But the town is small and easily walkable. A nice occasional diversion.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

This is a beautiful fishing village, you can watch the fishing, and lobster boats come and go. George's is a great place to stop in for your fresh steamers, lobster or fish !

“Best beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I moved to RI from NY as a child. If you are looking for great place to bring the family Galilee is a special destination. Wheeler beach is the best beach in Narragansett! Trust skip the Town beach (overcrowded and overpriced for parking). The beach is protected which makes it ideal for children to frolic in the gentle waves. Families will enjoy seeing the fishing boats, and the BI Ferry coming too and fro. Everything from ice cream to fresh seafood are available to enjoy. What are you waiting for?
