    Hi there

    I read the following sentences from Internet:

    As you drive north on I-35W heading towards Edina, take the I-494 west exit. Drive to France Avenue and exit to the right.

    Can I also use 'along', 'up' or 'towards'?
    But I think 'towards' is wrong because we usually use 'towards' with a destination or a place. 'To' is better because 'to' means is a place or location we intend to arrive at. 'Along' and 'up' are also another options.
    Am I right?

    Many thanks

    Re: drive

    You have many options, but I agree with you, "to" is best.
    "Toward" implies you are not moving on a precise, well-defined path.
