    2. Take FL-417 TOLL (Central Florida Greenway) WEST to I-4 WEST to TAMPA.
    3. Take I-4 WEST to I-75 to OCALA and NAPLES at EXIT 9. You want I-75 SOUTH to NAPLES.

    5. Turn right off the exit ramp onto FL-780 (Fruitville Rd) WEST.
    6. Take FL-780 WEST on Fruitville Rd to N Tamiami Tr (U.S. 41) SOUTH at END FL-780. Turn left onto N Tamiami Tr (U.S. 41).
