  • Airport for meeting??

    Hi all,
    Not sure if I can make the meeting but I'm looking into it.
    As it is a 10 hour drive I was wondering what airport is nearby?
    And just how far away is it as I would then need a taxi or rental car?

    Thank you much!

    Dear Julie,

    Newark, NJ is the closest airport. It is about 30 miles to the hotel. I checked their web site and they don't mention a shuttle.

    Maybe if enough people come in about the same time, you could rent a car together or a car service.

      The guy at the hotel told me there is a shuttle from the airport. State Shuttle, 1-800-427-3207. Advanced reservations are required.

        There are several car services that can get you to the hotel also - it runs about $50.00 to the hotel. If anyone wants the #'s let me know I will post them. ( I do not have it with me at the minute)

          Also, I'll be leaving Newark Airport around noon on Friday for the hotel. If anyone needs a lift around that time, let me know.

            Thank you all very much.

            Hopefully I can work out arrangements to get there.
