Block Island has been on my husband’s bucket list for a long time. We finally bit the bullet and just got in the car! Getting to the ferry in Point Judith, RI was easy and parking a breeze! Book on line if you can prior to your arrival as seats go fast! http://www.blockislandferry.com/
Dogs are allowed on the ferry in any outdoor area and we met several friends on the trip over, both four and two legged. As soon as you exit the ferry, the welcome center is there in “old harbor” to assist you with any plans for the day or even if you decide to stay overnight.
We decided to walk to the lighthouse. There was a Del’s Lemonade stand to quench our thirst–almost a mirage on this hot summer day. Most beaches on the island allow dogs on leash and we were able to stop and let Brya swim several times. Lunch was a breeze with many outdoor patio spots to allow Brya to lay under the table or off to the side. So many dog lovers, it was so refreshing!
The island itself isn’t terribly large, but we were able to eek out a 10mile hike around the bulk of it! New harbor was a treat with outdoor restaurants and bars with games being played right on the dock…..so fun! We loved our visit to this great dog friendly island–highly recommended!!!!!
