Join us for a fun day trip to Rhode Island's Block Island. We will meet at Point Judith to catch the ferry to Block Island. You can bring your own bike or rent a bike on the island. After riding an hour-long ferry to Block Island we will go and rent bikes for those in the group that need one. For those that don't want to bike ride, you can walk to our first meeting point at Mohegan's Bluff (3 miles walk).
From the bike rentals we will ride to Oaks Bluff to the beach to have lunch. The scenery is beautiful and peaceful. After lunch we will bike around the rest of the Island. We then plan to meet back in center of town where you can get ice cream and do some shopping. We plan to catch the 5:30 pm ferry back to Point Judith and have some fried clams before coming back to Boston.
Parking near Point Judith is $15 for full day. Please be early to catch the 10:30 am ferry to Block Island. Plan for a one hour and 45 minute drive from Boston to Point Judith. You will also have to factor in time for parking and buying the ferry tix.
