OK, Philadelphia... I need your help one more time. My daughter's treatment at CHOP back in May/June was very successful. We have to bring her back for a follow-up appointment next Monday. We're using this as an opportunity to take a short family beach vacation at Beach Haven on Long Beach Island.
We fly into PHL Friday morning and will get a rental car. We'll be setting off from the airport at around 9:30 am to drive to Beach Haven.
Monday morning we need to drive from Beach Haven to CHOP and be there before lunchtime.
Google gives the following routes... which would you suggest based on traffic at those times? (Routes can be reversed for the trip back.) Or is there some entirely different route which would be better? We know from our time there before that 76/676 will generally be very slow, so we'll allow lots of time to get to CHOP on Monday morning.
- I-76 to I-295, then smaller roads through Marlton and Medford, then NJ-72 to LBI.
- I-76 to I-676, then Admiral Wilson Blvd, then Rte 70, then continue through Marlton etc as above.
- I-76 to I-295, then Atlantic City Expy, then Garden State Pkwy, then NJ-72 to LBI.
