October on Block Island

Block Island is glorious in the fall. Less traffic, empty beaches, miles of pristine trails, flora and fauna galore. The Island is still open and there is plenty to do.

The only ferry running this time of year is the Block Island Ferry out of Point Judith and New England Airlines can get you here from Westerly in just 15 minutes if you choose to fly.

Accommodations are available at The 1661 Inn, INN at the Spring House, Avonlea and Sheffield House. Restaurants available are Bethanny’s Airport Diner (daily), Club Soda (nightly), Eli’s (weekends+), Kimberly’s (weekends+), Winfield’s (nightly), Spring House (nightly), McAloon's(nightly), Block Island Pizza Pie Co.(daily), Poor People's Pub(daily), Aldo's(weekends+) and Mohegan Cafe (daily). Many shops are open daily, though they have limited hours on weekdays.


There are still bike, moped and car rentals available and the trails stay open for Glass Float searching and exploring year-round. The self guided bike tour is also available year-round as are our awesome Taxi Tours of the Island!


More information can always be found at or right at the Visitor Center in the Ferry Parking lot when you get to the Island.
Hope to see you soon!
