Getting Here and Around

Air Travel

Rhode Island's main airport is T. F. Green in Warwick, which is served by most domestic air carriers. Boston's Logan Airport is only an hour away. The major car-rental agencies have branches at both airports.

Air Contacts

T. F. Green Airport (2000 Post Rd., off Iā€“95, Warwick, RI, 02886. 401/691ā€“2471 or 888/268ā€“7222. www.pvdairport.com.)

Car Travel

New England's main interstate, Route 95, cuts diagonally through Rhode Island, spanning 43 miles from the Connecticut border to the Massachusetts line.

Interstate 195 southeast from Providence leads to New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Cape Cod. Route 146 northwest from Providence leads to Worcester, Massachusetts, and Interstate 90, passing through the Blackstone Valley. U.S. 1 follows much of the Rhode Island coast east from Connecticut before turning north to Providence. Route 138 heads east from Route 1 to Jamestown, Newport, and Portsmouth, in easternmost Rhode Island. Route 114 leads south from East Providence down through the East Bay community of Bristol and then to Newport.

Once you're here, a car is your best way to get around the state, although it's quite practical to explore Providence and Newport on foot and using public transportation. Parking is easy to find outside of cities, though challenging and sometimes expensive in Downtown Providence and Newport.
