However, it can make it more challenging to reach than other locations. You can fly into Fort Myers, or you can take a bus or train. From there, you can rent a car to travel the rest of the way into the Cape Haze area. From Fort Myers, you can take Interstate 75 north to Highway 776.

This is a relatively short drive, but it does remove you from the hustle and bustle of the big city life in the Fort Myers area.
