Long Description:

"Galilee is a fishing village on Point Judith within the town of Narragansett, Rhode Island, USA, and is notable for being home to the largest fishing fleet in Rhode Island and for being the site of the Block Island Ferry. The village is directly across the harbor from Jerusalem, Rhode Island." Source: Wikipedia

Luke 17:11 (King James version): And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

In the Bible, Galilee is notable as the place where Jesus grew up and lived. Galilee is an area of northern Israel and southern Lebanon. Like its American counterpart, the Sea of Galilee is known for a flourishing fishing industry. This Ocean State place is also a summertime day trip and vacation destination for its many seafood restaurants and public beaches - Salty Brine and Roger Wheeler.

Bible verse: Luke 17:11 (King James version)
