My husband and I will be visiting RI and MA coast area from 6/30-7/6. We will fly into Boston around 1pm on the 30th and pick up a rental car there. We would like to visit Providence, Newport, Narragansett and Little Compton in RI, and Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket and 1-2 southeastern coast towns in MA. We like kayaking, hiking, visiting museum and tasting local delicacies.
1. There are several places in RI and MA offer ferry services to Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket, which one is most convenient and has more frequent rides?
2. Any suggestions on where we should start exploring, RI or MA? I guess it depends on which ferry port we will choose.
Here is our itinerary at the moment:
Day 1 (6/30) arrive at 1pm in Boston, Stay overnight in downtown Providence
Day 2 (7/1): Explore Narragansett and Jamestown on the way from Providence to Newport, overnight in Newport
Day 3 (7/2): Sight-seeing in Newport, overnight in Newport
Day 4 (7/3): Drive to Little Compton, then drive to woods hole, from there take a ferry to Martha’s vineyard or Nantucket, overnight on the island
Day 5 (7/4): Martha’s vineyard/ Nantucket? overnight on the island
Day 7 (7/6): drive back to Boston to catch return flight in early evening
Thanks in advance!
