Directions from Out of Town

Here are directions to key spots:

  1. AVAM: AVAM is the easiest place to get to from the interstates, particularly I-95. There are directions on the AVAM Website, or you can figure out how to get there from Google Maps.
  2. Canton Waterfront Park: Right on the harbor, you can drive there with these directions from Google Maps.
  3. Patterson Park: A bit further into the city, but not too hard to get to. Get directions from Google Maps.
