Block Island Ferry
What’s a trip to the Ocean State without a little nautical adventuring? Leave from Perrotti Park in downtown Newport, and along the way you'll sail past rocky bluffs, boulder-laden points, a handful of white-sand beaches, and the Point Judith Light, an octagonal brick lighthouse built in 1857. After crossing 10 miles of ocean, the Block Island Ferry will approach the bluffs and 17 miles of golden beaches that encircle almost all of the laid-back island known as the Bermuda of the North. Round-trip tickets are $50.50.
