We are taking rail from new york city to new london and then a ferry to Block island. Should we stay a night or two in new london or mystic or go straight to block island for 2-3 nights. We like slower pace, beaches, quaint sea side towns, nice walks,etc. Can a person get from new london rail station to mystic without a car? This area is completely new to us. We are really just looking for a nice 2-3 night break from new york city.
Any advice would be appreciated.
