Will you have a car? It is only a 175 mile trip - around 3.5 hours. Amtrak train is probably an option too.

If you are comfortable driving, I'd recommend taking the trip along Long Island, from JFK to the tip and get the ferry across to Connecticut https://www.longislandferry.com/default.aspx

It's a pleasant way to spend time at that time of year... Not expensive and quite a relaxing trip. The drive from Connecticut to RI is easy too.

Hello Friends,
I am from India and we drive on the left side of the road.Though I have driven cars on US roads,I am not confident to drive alone on your highways,that too after a long flight of 16 hours.
It would be great help if you can help me to understand the manageable way to reach this address-The Crowne Plaza
801 Greenwich Avenue, Warwick, RI 02886
from JFK by avoiding sophisticated systems of ticketing and trails.

There are no non-stop flights I can see between JFK and Providence (PVD). You would have to connect somewhere, which after a 16 hour flight would not be fun either.

Looks like you can route by bus to Penn Station then Amtrak to PVD, but that is also over five hours.

Personally I would look at changing my flight to enter the US in a city that has direct service to PVD. That looks like US Air via Philadelphia, Charlotte or Washington. United via Washington or Chicago. Delta via Atlanta or Detroit. Continental via Newark. http://www.pvdairport.com/

You don't mention where you are starting, so it is tough to know the best routing.

I agree, a better flight might be into Chicago and change for Providence, for example. There are shuttle services but they will be long duration to add to the flight, if you must fly into JFK. If you must, then maybe a stay in a local hotel would be a break before moving on, by road, to RI.

Just a thought.

I changed my plan of saving dollars and opted for a direct landing to Providence.
Thanks to my friends.
