Directions to Twin Towers:

From I-75 (South ): take the exit to I-74, and then the first exit off I-74, "Spring Grove" (exit 19). At the end of the exit ramp, take the center lane, and go straight across the intersection and continue until the street ends at Spring Grove. Turn LEFT. Go to the next light which is Hamilton Avenue and turn LEFT again. Follow Hamilton Avenue through the Northside business district and on up the hill to the Twin Towers Retirement Center at 5343 Hamilton Avenue.

Landmarks: the light on Hamilton Avenue where Ashtree Dr. comes in from the left is the light prior to the Twin Towers entrance. After the light at Ashtree and Hamilton, there's a U-Haul business on the left followed by a group of buildings that was once a school and is now a church. As you continue up Hamilton, the road starts to wind again and there is forest on the left. The entrance to Twin Towers is just after the forest ends and at the next light. Turn left into the drive and take the first right to park in the visitor's parking spaces. If the visitor's parking spots are full, keep going and there are more around the side of the building. Enter through the main entrance. There's a garden and small waterfall in front of the main entrance. You will be asked to sign in at the front desk. Twin Towers has to keep track of visitors in case there is an emergency. We dance in the Hader Room. Follow the hallway near the desk off to the right to get there.

From I-75 (North ): take the Galbraith Rd. exit. Turn left at the end of the exit ramp and get in the right lane. Go a shortish distance to the Ronald Reagan Cross County entrance ramp on the right. Follow Reagan Cross County to the Hamilton Avenue exit. At the end of the exit ramp, turn left onto Hamilton Avenue. You will travel through North College Hill and College Hill. When you cross North Bend Rd., that is the last major intersection before Twin Towers. The next street to look for is Belmont that comes in from the right and Hillcrest Rd. that goes off to the left at a light. The next light is the entrance to Twin Towers at 5343 Hamilton Avenue.

Landmarks: at the Belmont / Hillcrest Rd. intersection there's a church on the right hand corner.
