  • Flying to New Jersey for Conference

    I am not familiar with New Jersey and wandered where I would fly into so that I could be the closest to where the Conference is going to be. How far is the airport from the hotel? James and I definitely will be coming! Thanks, Janet

    Guess I will meet my fellow Georgian, in Jersey.
    You need to fly into Newark (EWR). The Hotel is 30-45 minutes away depending on traffic.
    t is possible that the hotel has a shuttle to the airport. Ask when you make the reservation.
    You can also see if any of your fellow board members can pick you up.
    I'm still not sure if I'm flying in or driving. Once I'm sure, I'll send you a PM.

      Hi Janet,

      I am flying into Newark and will be taking a shuttle from the airport to the hotel. They told me that they don't have a shuttle, but they recommended a local shuttle service called State Shuttle. Here is a link to their website:

      I think roundtrip from Newark to the hotel was about $50 and you should arrange in advance.
