If you're anywhere South of the Columbia, get on the I-5 freeway and point yourself north toward the Interstate Bridge and Washington. Just before you get to the bridge, take Marine Drive eastbound exit 307. At the fork at the end of the straight, go right around the sweeping turn to the stop sign. Turn left there, under Highway 99E. At the stop, go straight then bear right (east) onto Marine Drive. Follow Marine Drive east until you see Columbia Edgewater on your right (about 2 1/2 miles). If traffic's bad, forget the freeway and come north on NE 33rd then turn left onto Marine Drive westbound. We're a few hundred yards down on your left. Simple as that.

If you're in Vancouver, get on I-5 headed south and come across the Interstate bridge. As you come off on the Oregon side, follow exit 307 signs for NE Marine Drive eastbound. Proceed down Marine Drive until the golf course appears on your right.

If you're east of the city, come toward town on I-84. Take the NE 181st exit 13 and go north on 181st to NE Sandy. Turn left there and proceed westbound down Sandy to NE 122nd. Just before the intersection, watch for the sign for 122nd northbound (a left turn and circle off Sandy). Go north on NE 122nd to NE Marine Drive. Turn left and drive west approximately 6 miles. Course will be on your left. Closer in, you can take NE Columbia or NE Lombard to NE 33rd, turn north on 33rd and proceed to NE Marine Drive. Turn left and drive a few hundred yards west. You're there.

If you're west, probably the best approach is to take Highway 26 into town and through the Vista Ridge tunnel. Then follow the signs for I-5 northbound. Once on I-5, follow the "from the south" instructions, above. Piece of cake.
