Southwest flies out of Ft. Lauderdale into Tampa. So does Delta. It's a 1 hour flight, but by the time you go through security, wait, board, fly, land, and go get your rental car it'll be almost 4 hours, which is about the drive time. If you take I-75 north out of Ft. Lauderdale (it takes you across the state and then veers north) it will dump you right into Tampa. It's a simple drive.

Thx I think we will drive now. Sounds pretty easy except car rentals are very pricey right now.

If you do drive and take I-75 towards Ft. Myers see if you can spot any alligators where there's water in the canal at the side of the roadway. It will take away some of the boredom of the drive ... and it is a very boring drive.

That section of I-75 is a toll road (I think it is $3) and they take cash and give change if needed.
