Out and About: Rhode Island's Block Island

Out and About: Rhode Island's Block Island

Welcome to Week Two of PetSugar's Out and About travel feature where we'll visit the state of Rhode Island! Start the day by checking out the beautiful blazing red and golden amber fall foliage in the Narragansett Bay area before you (and your pooch) hop on the Block Island Ferry at Point Judith, just south of Narragansett. Leashed pets are allowed to make the hour-long trip on the traditional ferry, while small, contained pets can take the traditional or hi-speed ferry to this island.

Once there, wander the 20-plus miles of beaches (many open year-round) as well as The Greenway, a 30-plus mile network of trails – there are outdoorsy options for the true hikers, the leisurely strollers, as well as boats to rent and explore the 300-plus freshwater ponds. If you visit soon, you can see (and pup can bark at) the flocks of birds traveling along the Atlantic Flyway – often as many as 150 different species pass overhead!

Click here to share your own tips with PetSugar's Out and About travel group – and stay tuned as our week of Rhode Island continues!

born and raised RI native :) I live in FL now though, and FL has so many dog parks! I hope RI can get some going if they haven't already.

I live in Massachusetts but have never been to Block Island. How sad, right?! I love Newport though...one of my favorite daytrips in the summertime. Rhode Island has a lot of pretty areas.
