Outrigger Club Member Suggestions for drive:
Be patient in the traffic jams - the wait is worth it.
Once you are in the area, go get groceries before you arrive. You won’t want to leave once you get there.
Use Comfort Transportation (as recommended by outrigger desk staff) to get from airport to Outrigger. Excellent friendly service that doesn't cost any more than any cab would and there was no hassle trying to find a cab, telling them how to get to the hotel, etc. They even stopped at the grocery and liquor store on our way to the hotel!

For European travellers: Choose the Fort Myers Airport, not Miami!
For German travellers: Do not believe the report, that Fort Myers beach can be compared to Mallorca! The southern part is quiet and not at all crowded!
Use the trolley and pay to rent a shuttle from the airport and back. No real need for a car.
I-75 Is Best Traveled Beginning with an early start from home or wherever your starting point is. Enjoy the sights of Spanish moss, little roadside stops for citrus and the beauty of Florida.
Just enjoy the sights driving there…the view coming over the San Carlos bridge is just amazing…
