Airline Reservations
Most major airlines fly directly into Bradley International Airport. There are several modes of transportation to and from the airport which can be found at http://www.bradleyairport.com/directions/rental-taxi-limo/.

Also, consider sharing a taxi or car service with other participants depending on arrival. Once on site, there is no need for a car as restaurants and other stores are in close proximity.
