Island Events & Attractions

Fall on Block Island - what's open?

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.

Getting here you have the option of the Traditional Block Island Ferry out of Point Judith (year-round), New England Airlines can get you here from Westerly in just 15 minutes if you choose to fly (year-round), the High Speed out of Point Judith (until Oct 10th) and the High Speed out of New London, Ct. (weekends until Oct. 10).

There are plenty of accommodations and restaurants available.  Hours and seasonal closing dates are always shifting, but you can find the most up to date information by going to and clicking on 'Who's Open' at the top of the page.
Most shops are open on the weekends and many are open daily, though some with limited hours.


There are still bike 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!  You can explore our beaches and the grounds of both lighthouses are always open.


November also brings us the Holiday Stroll over Thanksgiving Weekend (Friday November 25- Sunday the 27th)  You'll find the famous Lobster-Pot-Tree in the center of town and many of the shops open with great discounts for all your holiday shopping needs! The High-speed ferry from Pt. Judith resumes for the weekend. Why fight the crowds on Black Friday when you can enjoy "Block Friday" instead!

We also have the Turkey Trot Road Race on Saturday, Nov. 26th, in case you need to burn off any of that Thanksgiving Feast!

More information can always be found 24/7 at or right at the Visitor Center in the Ferry Parking lot  when you get to the Island.
Hope to see you soon!
