At the Mid County Toll stay on 476 South and watch for signs for Philadelphia/Valley Forge. Get off at the exit marked for Philadelphia Route 76East. This is also known as the Schuylkill Expressway.

Stay on 76 East for nearly 20 miles. When you approach Philadelphia the road divides into 676 and 76. Stay on 76 East heading toward the Philadelphia Airport.

Bear straight ahead toward the Universities. When you get near the hospitals you will pass under a pedestrian bridge marked Veteran Affairs/Medical Center.

After you pass under this bridge you want to turn left at the third light toward Baltimore Avenue

When you turn, be sure to stay in the left lane marked for Woodland Avenue. After the traffic light you will pass a cemetery on the left and trolley station on the right.

Proceed past Woodland Terrace to the fork in the road. You want to bear right onto Chester Avenue. The Gables is at 4520 Chester Avenue. You want to go to the fourth stop sign and turn left onto 46th Street. The Gables is on the left corner at 4520 Chester and is easily recognized by its red brick exterior, large wrap-around porch and candles in the windows.

For convenient off-street parking please use The Gables' driveway which will be on your left after you turn onto 46th Street.

From the driveway, walk through the side yard and up onto the porch, around to the front door. Ring the doorbell and you will be welcomed by the hosts.
