I'm flying into Boston Logan airport in early December, arriving on a domestic flight from Miami at 6:45pm. Can anyone tell me what's the best/cheapest way of getting from Boston airport to Providence, RI?? Is it do-able to get to Providence that same evening, or will I have to stay overnight in Boston and then onwards to Providence the next day? If necessary to overnight in Boston, does anyone have a good (inexpensive!) hostel or hotel recommendation that would give me decent access to whichever public transport I'll need to take to Providence.

1It's not very far from Logan to Providence (around an hour to an hour and a half depending upon traffic) and there is regular bus service between the two.
No need to spend the night in Boston if you want to get to Providence. I know Peter Pan bus operates regularly between the two, but you should use Google to get more options, prices and schedues.

2I've never done this myself so take caution with the following advice:
I've heard that you can get a bus from Boston to one of the several providence area casinos and the casino will redeem any round trip bus fare in chips. Supposedly there is a method to redeem those chips for cash.
