Port Columbus International Airport (CMH) is located northeast of Columbus’ city center right off I-270, also known as the Outerbelt. CMH connects from I-270 to I-70, I-71 and I-670, to downtown Columbus and the surrounding suburbs. The airport offers bus and shuttle services, as well as taxi and private car hire.
From CMH to Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), typical flight duration is three to four hours, depending on stops. Passengers arriving at RSW can find bus and shuttle services to downtown Fort Myers and their hotel. The airport is also conveniently located near Interstate 75, providing access to the city, beach and suburbs.
Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island are must-do’s for tourists who want sun and sand. Edison and Ford Winter Estates are a big attraction, with a historic museum on the properties of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford’s winter homes.
The Imaginarium Hands-On Aquarium is fun for all ages. Couples and singles can head downtown to the entertainment district for drinks and dancing at Yabo or Belushi’s for a comedy show. Bell Tower Shops and Gulf Coast Town Center are great for shopping.
Visitors coming to Fort Myers typically stay in downtown hotels or beach resort hotels, both of which are accessible to the attractions. The temperatures can hit triple digits in summer, so September through May is the preferred travel time for tourists.
