Directions to Florida Sun Cats Show

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: The I-95 Northbound interchange with I-295 is closed until 2006 - there is a detour that will put you on I-95 South to reach I-295 North, but coming from the south you may want to follow the alternate route below - it is longer, but may be easier if traffic is heavy on the interstate. It also takes you through some pretty country.

Also note: The show hotel is located on a major commuter route, so you may wish to time your arrival to avoid the 4:30 - 6:00 rush hour. In fact, we recommend you do. I-295 may have a substantial backup in both directions during this time.
