​GETTING THERE: If you are flying to the reunion, transportation will be the toughest issue.  You may fly into Bradley International in Hartford, CT or T F Greene in Providence, RI which are each about an hour away although Providence is a straight shot on I-95.  You may also fly into JFK or LGA in New York City, they are about 2 hours away.  In any case we suggest you rent a car.  If you shop around you may find car rental a lower cost alternative than taking a train, bus or limo service.  There are no airport shuttles to the Mystic area.  You may also take AMTRAK to New London, CT and the hotel shuttle will pick you up.  There is limited bus transportation to the area.  If anyone finds better ideas, please let us know.
