Driving from Miami

We are flying into Miami on March 23 (Easter Sunday) and driving to the Marco Island Marriott for the week.

When using trip planning software, I get either I 75 or State Rd 41. Both are about 2 hours

Any local advice?

I always 41 when coming from the MIA airport.

It is almost exactly a 2 hour drive.

Hi. Would not recommend 41 if you are driving after dark. Definitely not for out-of-towners at night.

Thanks for the responses

we arrive at noon on Sunday - so the driving will be all daytime

Is 41 a 2 lane road so thet if someone is driving slow, we will be stick?

41 is a two-lane but puts you right at the south end of Marco. 75 is an interstate that brings you to Collier Boulevard (which is under alot of construction between 75 and 41). I would use 41 and be prepared to pass if you have to.

Take highway 41. Besides it being the best route for travel to Marco, it will also be the most seinic. Have fun. Marco is a joy.
