If you’re in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, or New Jersey, consider driving. Further out? Fly to Boston Logan (BOS) or Providence’s T.F. Green airport (PVD). If you fly to BOS, you could rent a car or take the train 53 miles to Providence. If you fly to PVD, it’s a 12-mile Uber ride to The Graduate Hotel.
Plan to come in on Wednesday, September 28. I have a room block at The Graduate for the nights of Sept 28 and 29 for $149/night. Book your room here after you’ve registered for BBF Live!
On Day 2 we’ll make the 45-minute drive down to Newport. My wife, Emida, will be joining us. Between the two of us, we’ll be able to transport up to 8 people, and I know at least a couple people attending are driving, so don’t feel like you have to rent a car. We’ll have it covered.
If you’re driving, you can head back anytime later in the day on Friday, or stay an extra day or two and make a fun weekend out of it. As I said, New England in fall is beautiful! With the We’re right near Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Long Island, or you could head north a few hours up to Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont. I can give you lots of suggestions.
If you’re flying back, either make arrangements for late in the day Friday, September 30, or stay longer to enjoy the weekend. Emida or I might be able to get you from Newport to the airport, depending on what time your flight is, or you could take an Uber (28 miles).
