Coming and going, your trip to Block Island offers endless options for outdoor fun

One of the best parts of taking the Block Island Ferry is all the fun outdoor activities around each port. Leaving from the main ferry terminal in Narragansett, RI [Point Judith]? Explore the charming fishing town of Galilee with its two beaches. If you’re departing from Newport, RI, take the Cliff Walk for dramatic ocean and mansion views. And once you’re in Old Harbor, of course, the outdoor world is your oyster (or quahog if you decide to go clamming). Surf, swim, paddleboard, or fish off the beautiful beaches. Go kayaking or biking or walk one of the trails in the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge or Rodman’s Hollow. Stroll the shoreline of Great Salt Pond. Go parasailing, visit a lighthouse, take a ghost tour, or go horseback riding.

From foodie and history-based tours to zip lining and gondola rides, the outdoors is the “in” thing

Who says the best activities in a city are indoors?

Take a foodie bike tour (there’s are loops for donuts, and beer), go ice skating at BankNewport City Center, meet the animals or go zip lining at Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village, arrange for a narrated architecture boat tour, or board a swan boat at Roger Williams Park.
