Fetch your luggage, exit arrivals at North Kingstown, RI Airport (NCO-Quonset State), and collect your rental car. Which one you jump into depends on where you plan to go. If you’ll be spending most of your time driving in downtown Providence, around 16 miles from the terminal, choose something small. A compact car with nimble handling will suit those bustling city streets. But with almost endless things to see, like the gorgeous cliffs of the region, you’ll probably be racking up a few miles. A bigger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make lengthier road trips a joy.
