Driving to Joint Base MDL:

From New Jersey Turnpike: Exit 7 or I-295 McGuire/Dix exit: Take U.S. Route 206 south for approximately 1/2 a mile. Stay in the left lane to the “Y” intersection of Routes 206 and 68. Turn left on Route 68 and go approximately 4 miles. Look for a sign pointing left to “McGuire/Deborah Hospital.” Turn left at the sign across the opposite lanes of Route 68. At the immediate “T” intersection, turn right on Burlington County Route 545 and head south for approximately two miles (crossing Burlington County Route 537 at the one-and one-half-mile point). At the intersection of Route 537, continue straight ahead, as the road becomes a four-lane divided highway. Follow the four-lane highway (which eventually becomes Burlington County Route 680) straight into the Main Gate.

From the north: Travel south on the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95 in northern New Jersey) to Exit 7. Follow directions from turnpike.

From the west: Travel east on the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76 becomes I-276: do not take I-76 into Philadelphia.) to the New Jersey Turnpike. Go north on the New Jersey Turnpike to Exit 7. Follow directions from turnpike.

From the south: Travel north on I-95 though Delaware to just south of Wilmington, Del. Follow the signs for I-295 and the New Jersey Turnpike across the Delaware Memorial Bridge into New Jersey. Take the New Jersey Turnpike north to Exit 7 or I-295 north to the McGuire/Dix exit and follow directions.

  1. Not for little kids. I remember from last time there’s a gazillion people there and you need to walk very far from parking area to event grounds.

  3. I was there last time. TERRIBLE traffic both ways. By the show you stand in oppressive sun. And insane amount of walking. Even just to get to a restroom or simply get away from the sun. Will not return this year.

  4. I went yrs ago and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. It’s like, 1 hour of boredom for every 3 minutes of entertainment. And after you’ve seen 3 low-flying fighter planes, it gets kinda boring. Unless ur a fighter plane buff. Which I am. Not.
