We're thinking of spending about 2-2.5 days in Orlando doing a few theme parks (my wife & and & our almost 6-yr-old daughter) this June, then ending up in Marco Island for 4-5 days after the theme park portion of the trip.
We've split-up our vacation between Orlando and Treasure Island the last 4 years, so where we fly into (Tampa vs. Orlando) hasn't been that big of a deal since it's just under a 2 hour drive between Orlando / Treasure Island.
Different this year though... looks to be about a 4-hr. drive from Orlando to Marco Island. So, we're exploring options to try to have as least amt. of a drive between destination # 1 (Orlando) & destination # 2 (Marco Island). There's of course always the option of flying into Orlando, spend the 2-3 days there & then driving to Marco Island & then flying out of the closer Ft. Myers airport to get back home afterwards, but the 1-way rental car expenses are typically high.
Anyway, you see where I'm going here... any suggestions for some alternate airports to fly in/out of that would make our driving shorter... maybe a location that's roughly equally 2 hours away from Orlando and 2 hours away from Marco Island?
Thanks for any suggestions...
