Travelling to American Football Game - Ben Hill Griffin

I was wondering if someone would be able to help me :)

I am going to see the Florida Gators in September however I am not sure what the best way to travel to the stadium would be. The address for the stadium is 120 SW 13th St, Gainesville, FL and I will be travelling from the Hampton Inn located on South Kirkman Road (near international drive)

I was wondering if anyone had any experience of making this trip ir could even point me in the right direction to look for buses.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks

Caroline

The best way, IMO, would be by rental car. I would be surprised if buses are an option.

I'm not sure from your question if you realize the distance involved is about 120 miles - at least a 2 hr drive by car. I don't think there are many good bus options, but this company is very good and might work- but my guess is that the fare will be about $100 pp round trip and you may have to add a taxi at each end to get to their terminals. But they are clean and reputable ( and some othetr similar companies are not).

If you can, rent a car to get to Gainesville. If you have a car you'll be able to stay and to walk around campus afterwards The drive is a pretty straight shot up the Turnpike and I-75 once the Turnpike ends (they intersect). However you get there you should really enjoy the game. Go Gators!
