Fastest route from Providence:
I-195 E to Exit 2 in MA. [Important, not Exit 2 in RI!]
Turn RIGHT at end of ramp, follow Rte 136 S for about 5-6 miles.
When you see Bristol Toyota on left, you know you're in Bristol.
Continue on 136 S, you'll see Stop & Shop supermarket on right.
Turn RIGHT at next light onto Gooding Ave. [Shell station & Brooks Pharmacy @ junction]
Go straight on Gooding to end.
Turn LEFT onto Rte 114 S.
Turn RIGHT @ next traffic light to park entrance.

Scenic route from Providence:
I-195 E to Exit 8 in RI.
Follow Rte 114 S, through Riverside, Barrington and Warren.
After getting into Bristol, go to 3rd traffic light. [Newport Creamery @ 2nd light.]
Turn RIGHT at that 3rd light to park entrance.

From Boston and SE MA:
Take Rte 24 S from Fall River towards Newport
Once in Fall River it's 24S to 195W to 24S again. When you get to 195, stay in the right lane. You have to drive on 195 for about 1/2 mi to get back onto the rest of 24. (It's not that bad).
After entering RI and crossing Sakonnet River bridge, take 2nd exit [just after weigh station/Roger Williams university Convention Ctr.].
Turn right at end of ramp and go straight at light onto Mount Hope Bridge [big suspension bridge]
After bridge, bear left and stay on Rte 114 N through Bristol center.
At 2nd light, turn LEFT to park entrance.
