Fodor's Review

This 1867 granite lighthouse on the northernmost tip of the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge serves as a maritime museum. The refuge is home to American oystercatchers, piping plovers, and other rare migrating birds. From a parking lot at the end of Corn Neck Road, it's a ¾-mile hike over sand to the lighthouse. Seals sun themselves on nearby Sandy Point during winter months.
