Hi, Block Ilsand experts,
I will be visiting Mystic, CT for a short 3 day 2 night trip with my kids (ages 12, 11, 8) next week. I had planned to do the Argia schooner cruise, but a friend suggested that instead we might want to consider taking a ferry to Block Island and spend a part of a day, or all day, there. I know this is not an even trade when it comes to time (Argia cruise ~2 hrs vs. Block Island much more than 2 hrs.) My sense is there is plenty to do and see in Mystic for our time there without adding in Block Island; however, I'm sure Block Island would be beautiful and a wonderful experience as well. My kids and I are spontaneous and enjoy being "on the go" so we would be willing to add it in if it's a "Do Not Miss" while we're in the area. My question is do you recommend doing the Block Island excursion?
P.S. I've also posted this on the Mystic forum
