From Ft.Pierce: Here are both sets of directions. I know the pretty, interesting one sounds very difficult, but it is not as hard as it sounds. It will save you time, and it’s a much more fun drive.

1. Here are the easy directions:
I-95 south to SR 80 (Southern Blvd). SR 80 west to Belle Glade (it will take 50–60 minutes after you get off of I-95). When you get to Belle Glade, there will be a group of county office buildings on your left, and railroad tracks in front of you. To get to the hotel, turn left at that light. This road becomes Main Street and goes all the way through town. When you get to the south end of town, the road takes a big bend to the right and you will pass Glades Central High School on the right. At the next light, turn right (SR 715) and the Palm Beach State College entrance is on the left.


2. These are the quicker, more interesting, yet more complicated directions:
Take I-95 south to 712-Midway Road (just south of Ft.Pierce). Turn left off the exit ramp and go to the next traffic light (709). Not sure what they call this road here, but there will be a very large Tropicana plant on your left, as well as a gas station with a Subway. Turn right onto 709 (it’s either called Glades Cut-off Road or Rangeline Road, I think, but don’t worry – you can’t miss it.) Take this road to C-609 and go left – it’s not a full left turn, it’s an angle, and then there are railroad tracks right after you turn.

The next road is a BEAUTIFUL drive, so if it is daylight (if it’s dark, read below): turn right when you get to 714 (it’s a four-way stop). When this road ends, turn right onto 710, and then an almost immediate left onto C-15B. When C-15B ends, turn left onto US 441.

If it is dark, continue straight on 609 (don’t turn onto 714). Turn left when you get to 710 (there’s an ice plant there). You will go through a town called Indiantown. After you go through the town, you’ll go over a big bridge. After the bridge, turn left to get to 76. Turn left onto 76. When you get to Port Mayaca, it takes a big bend to the left and then joins up with US 441.

Follow these remaining directions either dark or light:

Take 441 south to Canal Point. In Canal Point, it takes a jog to the left, and then to the right (there’s a flashing light where it jogs right). Continue on 441 south to Pahokee. In Pahokee, it goes left at a flashing light, and then turn right at the next light onto SR-715. Take 715 south. It’s 7–9 miles to Belle Glade. After going straight through a light, stay on this road another 3.2 miles and you will see the Palm Beach State College campus on the right. Turn in here and follow the sign for the theatre.
