Boston to Block Island

Jump to last reply

This summer we are flying from the west coast for a week's stay on Block Island. We will not have a car. I have a couple of questions about the train and ferrry connections.

Flying into Boston on a red eye and will connect to Amtrak; I think the first train we can make leaves around 8 am. I am not sure where we should get off. It looks to me like the New London station is near the ferry port to Block Island. There is also a ferry from Port Judith, Rhode Island, but I am not sure how to get to the ferry from there.

Also, I am not sure whether its adviseable to purchase the train and ferry tickets in advance or not. We are sure to be tired and jet lagged at that point.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
