Known as a “Waterfront Waterland,” and often likened to the Venice of America, southwestern Florida’s Cape Coral is home to a myriad of amenities and rental accommodation options connected by over 600 kilometres of navigable waterways.
Bordering the Gulf of Mexico and the Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge, and brimming with athletic parks, golf and tennis courts—as well as family attractions like the popular Sun Splash Family Waterpark—there is plenty to do and see in Cape Coral. While a typical beach day includes sunbathing, swimming, and beachcombing, the city also abounds with recreational opportunities. Hiking, biking, boating, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, jet skiing, water tubing, and wildlife watching are popular outdoors activities. In addition to shops, cafés, and restaurants, Cape Coral also hosts an array of annual events, such as the Arts Festival, the Jazz Festival and the Christmas Holiday Boat-A-Long. Day trips to nearby Sanibel and Captiva Islands are recommended.
Cape Coral offers natural, outdoor, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is less than a thirty minutes’ drive northwest of Fort Myers.+ More
