More Summer Vacation Ideas

For me most summer weekends are spent outside of Boston either in Cohasset or Nantucket, but recently I have been looking to mix up my usual summer routine. Last week I was more than excited to hear that Newport, RI is now offering ferry services to Block Island, a small island 13 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. Running three times a day - 9 am, 12:05pm, and 6:45pm, the fast ferry zooms you off the mainland in just 70 minutes, and for just $50.

Now I personally have never been to Block Island, but with this news my boyfriend and I have already starting planning a September weekend trip filled with beach time, lighthouse tours, sight seeing and more. Have you been to Block Island? Share your tips with us!
