FROM DOWNTOWN ORLANDO AREA
From downtown Orlando, go west on the East-West Expressway until you come to the Florida Turnpike, which is where the East-West Expressway ends.
Go north on the turnpike, which is your only option, until you come to the Leesburg/Tavares exit which is also marked as exit 285 and is the exit for SR 19 and Hwy. 27. This exit comes after the second Clermont exit.
After going through the tollbooth, turn left on Hwy. 27 and immediately get into the left lane. Turn left at the very first road which is CR 19 North, towards Howey-in-the-Hills.
When you enter Howey, please observe the speed limit signs because the town strictly enforces them.
There is one blinking light in town followed by a full traffic light in front of the main Mission Inn Golf and Country Club sign. At this light keep in the left lane which is the start of CR. 48. From this intersection, go straight on and you will find the Bakery 3.2 miles ahead on the left in a two story Bavarian style building.

Take this exit. You will drive for some miles and the road will do some bending. When you come to the intersection with CR 448A, bear right and continue following the road.
Your next checkpoint will be a gas station at a intersection with a traffic light. Drive straight for appr. 3/4 mile until you run into SR 19. Turn left on SR 19 going South.
