Driving from Fort Meyers Airport to Englewood Area

I will be driving from the Fort Meyers Airport to Englewood and have no idea what the highway is like. I have been a passenger from Orlando to Englewood some time ago so that is the only thing I have to compare it to. It was very busy.

I would appreciate any comments. Lynn

Easy peasy lemon sqeezy, just did it a week ago.

You take the North Tampa I75 route, then exit at 170/Kings Highway. turn right immediately onto Veteran's blvd which turns into Rt 776 to Englewood after it crosses Rt 41 at Port Charlotte (Mall). Continue on, over the Myakka River in El Jobeen to the west side. Then where, will depend on where in Englewood/Rotonda you might be located. Englewood proper is a few miles west of the River. The road goes straight there, but changes name to McCall.

Thank you so much! How long was the drive. I will be getting into Fort Meyers quite late and was just wondering when it gets dark there.

Sunrise and sunset times available on weather.com, was around 8pm lately.

As for the time, like I said will depend on where you are going, and you didn't say (again lol). Took me just over an hour- say 1 hour 15. And I doubt you'll be as late as me, my flight was late and I didn't get out until 12 midnight, and it was past one am when I got home.
