If getting there really Is half the fun, then traveling to Boca Grande is a picnic. Yes, we're a little off the beaten path. But that's part of the charm. Here's how to find us. You can use the directions tab on the map to get - well, directions. Then, just look for the big red pin protruding from the middle of the street. You're here!
Boca Grade is served by Tampa International (TPA), Sarasota-Bradenton International (SRQ), Southwest Florida International (RSW) in Ft Myers and Punta Gorda Airport (PGD). Yes, Punta Gorda. It's the closest and the least expensive. But you have to live in the right place. Punta Gorda is served by Allegiant Air Allegiant continues to expand its PGD routes, so check the airport's website for updates. The airline also serves PIE - which is both a dessert and an airport.
If you have a Citation or Gulfstream warming up on the ramp, check with Coral Creek Airport just off the island in Placida. It is a private strip and permission to land must be obtained in advance. Punta Gorda is the next closest GA facility. Venice Airport is also an option.
Driving time from TPA is about two hours. SRQ is about 80 minutes, RSW is about the same and PGD is a quick 40 minutes. Coral Creek? About 15 minutes.
NOTE: There is a toll booth and six very wicked (and temporary, we hope) speed bumps between you and the Anchor Inn once you turn onto the causeway. We can't do anything about any of this.
