I have talked with many people across the state of Florida as well as people from other states and few really know much about Cape Coral. They think it is some little place somewhere. Well, let me help upgrade the information about this Waterfront Wonderland.
Cape Coral is the largest city between Tampa and Miami, yet it boasts a lower than average population density for Florida. It is just 14 miles from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) where 8 million passengers annually are served. This makes it very convenient for those traveling by air from any place in the world.
Cape Coral has over 400 miles of navigable waterways which means there are more miles of canals than any other city in the world. With so many canals there is a high percentage of properties that are on deep water canals with no bridges to the Gulf of Mexico. Many homes in the South part of Cape Coral are only minutes from the Gulf, Sanibel/Captiva Islands, Ft Myers Beach, Lovers Key and Naples.
If deep water canals are not important, there are many homes on canals that do not have Gulf access, but provide the enjoyment of being on the water. The canals also provide fishing opportunities from your own dock. This is an easy way to provide hours of entertainment for family (grand-kids) and guests. Even the freshwater canals are a great place to enjoy a canoe or kayak.
Cape Coral averages 355 days of sunshine each year, which makes it a great place to live and get away from the cold and snow of the North.
Many homes in Cape Coral also have a pool that adds to the enjoyment of those who love the water. Views from the lanai offer a very relaxing atmosphere for BBQ's and watching boats go by.
Locals call Cape Coral "The Cape". For those who enjoy waterfront dining, The Cape, has several restaurants that are on the water and are accessible by boat.
Cape Coral has many residents who have no interest in the water, but it is also a tremendous place to live for those who want a Waterfront Wonderland.
