1. Visitor Center
Located at the edge of the parking lot where you get off the ferry in Old Harbor, the Visitor Center is a good first stop on Block Island. Beyond restrooms, an ATM, and lockers, the folks who man the desk are equipped to answer questions, furnish maps, and provide information and directions. The center is open year round, but hours vary with the season; in summer, it’s open 9-5.
To get to the next stop, exit the building and take a right, walking through the parking lot in the direction of Ballard’s and Finns. When you exit the parking area keeping Finns on your immediate right, you will see a small grass path marked Oceanview Pavillion directly across the street. Walk up that path.
