Block Island is the Perfect Weekend Trip
A few hours from NYC, this getaway will transport you to more wholesome times past.
If you’re looking to escape the city for a relaxing vacation and are yearning for the charm of a classic New England seaside town, consider a trip to Block Island, R.I. A mere 14 miles east of Montauk and 12 miles off the Rhode Island coast, it’s an easily accessible alternative to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket for a weekend getaway.
A Quick Trip from Montauk, NY or Newport, RI
Having spent more than a few weekends in the Hamptons and Montauk on the south fork of Long Island, N.Y, my boyfriend and I decided to take a weekend trip to Block Island for a change of pace. After a quick breakfast at a local pancake house, we boarded one of the daily high-speed ferries from Montauk.
