    Newport Transportation

    We always arrive in Newport by car and depending on whether we visit any of the mansion we will then park the car in the mansion parking lot, which is provided for free while visiting the mansion. You can also leave your car in one of the many mansion lots and come back when you have done your touring (for those mansion in close proximity). If we...

  • Bus or Car

    Newport Transportation

    I have only arrived here by bus and by car. Either way can leave you anywhere in town you want to start. There are many public parking lots around town to leave the car and get to walking. Sadly the nearest train station is over in Kingston, RI which is approximately $55 each way by taxi from there.

  • Walking

    Newport Transportation

    I spend a lot of time exploring a location walking around at my leisure. I park my car usually at that Visitor's Center and walk America's Cup Ave to the wharfs and around the waterfront. I love walking because it allows me the freedom to stop for something to eat or drink, peruse a store, do some shopping, wander with no worries about where to...

  • T.F. Green Airport

    Providence's T.F. Green Airport (PVD) bills itself as the "Hassle-Free Gateway to New England," and this is true. Providence lies between Boston and New York City, so anyone wanting to visit New England can avoid the overcrowded airports in those other cities by flying into this small airport. T.F. Green Airport is about 11 miles (18 kilometers)...

  • The way to fly ...

    UPDATE: There is a new route to baggage claim which eases the congestion at security. And Gate 9 still houses the Chicago flights on United as it did the American ones before AA stopped flying to PVD. T.F. Greene Airport in Providence is a pleasant, well-organized one, even with the new security measures..Folks who can, often use PVD rather than...

  • Back Yard Air-Port

    The Reversers were just put on. Really loud even being across the street and in front of the plane. I like watching planes. There are always a few people hanging along one of the RUN-WAYS to watch the planes come and go.

    That plane just flew over my neighbors house! Thats the direction of the SHORT RUN-WAY. GREEN STATE AIRPORT.When you make your REVS, you say PROVIDENCE. But it's really in the middle of WARWICK. I was just playing around with my new PENTAX last summer. They want to make the runways longer. Don't see the point. Not nearly as busy as before 9/11!Hope...
