If your not in a hurry, take 41 to 997 south.
Some construction on 997, but no Miami traffic.

I would personally avoid 41 through Fort Myers and Naples, (endless stop lights) and take I-75 South and then switch back to 41 south of Naples.

Take 82 over to 29 through Immokalee and straight south to US41. Then 997 down to the intersection with US1.

Agree with this, do not miss taking 41 after south on Naples, beautiful ride. Watch for gaters in ditches along the road. Priceless.

We took the 41-997 route to the rally last year. A little construction on 997 but the scenery was worth it. Take 75 to the 41 exit south of Naples.
