Surrounded by diverse landscapes, towns and cities, the area of Northport is a great place to begin your family's Cruise America, Southwestern Florida motor home vacation. Florida offers a vast array of adventure, from big city entertainment to endless beaches. So pack up the RV and don’t forget the swimsuits because you are sure to be visiting some of the coolest (and hottest) places that the Sunshine State has to offer!
Cruise America's Northport location is conveniently located approximately 10 miles from its neighboring town, Port Charlotte. This location is ideal, as it is located within an hour of Tampa, 45 minutes from Cape Coral and an hour from Bonita Springs. These surrounding areas all offer their own versions of fun, and are all desired destinations by those that travel the Southwestern Coast of Florida.
To begin your “one-tank” trip of this area, start by taking I-75 South to the tropical city of Tampa, Florida! This city is packed with exciting adventures, starting with the famous Busch Gardens amusement park. Busch Gardens is 335 acres of plunging roller coaster, native African animals, exotic gardens and live entertainment. RV parking is easily accessible, as you are able to park at a nearby RV resort or, by simply paying a one-time daily fee, at the park itself. Tampa is also home of the Big Cat Zoo, Bayshore Boulevard, The Glazer Children’s Museum and the Amalia Arena where you can catch local hockey, basketball and even concerts.
Once you have had your fair share of all that Tampa offers, escape to the waterfront wonderland of Cape Coral. Located in Lee County, just South of Tampa you can take I-75 S. on an all coastal-side drive to this gorgeous city. Visitors will enjoy chartered fishing and crab tours, as well as dining with ocean side seating as they take in the sites of the native waterfowl, butterflies, migrant songbirds and gopher tortoises, just to name a few of many animal species supported in this area; a true paradise for the nature enthusiast of the group! And located in the same county, just 30-minutes south of Cape Coral you will find the sparkling beaches of Bonita Springs. Bonita Springs is a welcoming community best known for their fishing and nature preserves. Park your motor home at one of the 10+ RV parks in the area and go enjoy kayaking, wildlife tours, the local flea market, parasailing or jet skiing. When you are ready to wind down for the evening, visit one of the local eateries and fill your bellies with seafood and locally brewed beer.
