What to bring?

We're headed to Block Island next week and we were wondering what we needed to bring.

Should we bring bicycles?

Should we bring beach chairs?

Or is all of this available to rent?

You can rent bikes,scooters and vehicles on the island but I'm totaly unsure on beach chairs.

Bring collapsible beach chairs; they're easy to carry. Or you could probably buy some at Star Department Store. I've never heard of a place anywhere that rents them. To me it doesn't exactly sound like a money-making proposition!

The main Block Island Ferry, from Pt Judith, charges $5 per bicycle each way for transporting two-wheelers. I can't quote rental rates because I walk everywhere when I'm on-island. But that's something to consider, especially if "we" means four or more persons.
