Eastern Collier County is contiguous with several major Florida cities. Naples, a time-honored vacation destination, is just 45 minutes southwest of Immokalee. Miami, another popular vacation destination, is 90 minutes southeast. The prominent beach town of Fort Myers is just 45 minutes northwest of Immokalee, and those who like to fish are in luck, as the expansive Lake Okeechobee is just an hour northeast of the town.
There are several airports proximal to the area. Immokalee Regional Airport, a rapidly growing airport, is home to two runways, a self-service 24-hour fuel farm and a terminal building with a conference room, pilot’s lounge and flight-planning room. Its strategic location between Miami and Naples makes it the go-to airport for private flights. The Collier County Airport Authority oversees the development and management of this airport as well as the Marco Island Executive Airport, the Everglades Airpark and the Florida Tradeport.
For international air travel, the area is served by Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), which services the counties of Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades; Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), which offers non-stop service to more than 55 U.S. cities; and Miami International Airport (MIA), the largest U.S. gateway to Latin American/Caribbean destinations.
Of course road travel is a breeze, too, with State Routes 29 and 82 and County Highway 846 leading into and out of Immokalee.
