, then Grants Mill Road, hang a right onto Rex Lake Road which is the road Barber is located on
......and it will allow you to stay away from 280 pretty much. The good part about 280 is that it has plenty of eateries/nightlife.....and it's higher-income housing out there, which keeps the riff-raff away. On the brightside.......I believe the Day's Inn is near "The Titlted Kilt", right???
Thats the way to go. We stay at a La Quinta INN 2 or 3 blocks from this intersection and don't have to contend with 280 that much. The La Quinta is also adjacent to the Irish Pub mentioned in another post - very convenient.
