Enter to win 2 same-day round-trip tickets on the new high-speed ferry from Newport to Block Island, and after a fun day on Block Island, head back to Newport for dinner for two and an overnight at the Newport Marriott Hotel.
You’ll take the newest high-speed Block Island Ferry, which sails several times daily from Perrotti Park in downtown Newport, to one of the last untouched examples of New England island beauty. Onboard, relax in the ferry’s comfortable, climate-controlled interior with cushioned seats and a full galley that offers continental breakfast, hot dogs and snacks. You can even celebrate your getaway with morning Bloody Marys and afternoon Margaritas.
Arriving in Old Harbor, Block Island, you’ll walk off the boat to gourmet restaurants, gift shops, and casual beachside bars. If you feel adventuresome, rent bikes or mopeds to see the island’s rugged shoreline, sandy beaches, and boat-filled marinas. Explore its rolling moors, stone walls, bird sanctuaries, and secluded walking trails. See Mohegan Bluffs and the Southeast Lighthouse, now designated a National Historic Landmark. Jet-ski, parasail, or just lie in the sand. There are lots of ways to enjoy this island paradise.
Upon your return to Newport, enjoy an evening on the town and dinner for two at one of Newport’s great restaurants and then unwind at the Newport Marriott. The perfect getaway—Block Island AND Newport—brought to you by WROR and the Block Island Ferry.
