Block Island is located off the coast of Rhode Island. It takes about an hour to get there on the slow ferry from Point Judith. Unless you are staying for an extended time or have rented a house away from the harbor there is no need to bring a car. Nearly all of the Inns or B&B's are within walking distance from the ferry. We stayed for 4 nights and left our car at the little hotel across from the Point Judith ferry terminal. Parking for the 4 days only cost $10! Bringing the car on the ferry costs $45 each way. Our bicycles cost $5.80 round trip.
There are only approx. 900 year round residents but there is a brewery...my kind of town.
We returned to Block Island during the last weekend in April. It is very quiet compared to high season but unfortunately many of the restaurants are not yet open. The bike and moped rentals offer cheaper rates!
- Pros:No Franchises
- Cons:Lodging is expensive
Stayed during the off season. We booked a suite for our party of 5 at $170 per night including a contenental breakfast.... more travel advice
Great seafood in a casual atmosphere. Depending on the weather, you can eat outside on the deck more travel advice
