Fort Myers is located on the Caloosahatchee River, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico 15 miles away.
I-75 traverses the county in a north/south direction; in Collier County to the south it turns east and is dubbed the Everglades Parkway (aka. Alligator Alley). U.S. Highway 41 (aka Tamiami Trail) is the other main north/south road. It runs from Tampa to Miami, roughly paralleling I-75, although it is the older of the two highways and is both farther west -- closer to the ocean -- and farther south than I-75.
Lee County Transit -- or the LeeTran -- buses drive regular routes around the county. Trolley shuttles are popular, particularly in beach areas.
