Situated along the banks of southwest Florida, Cape Coral, is home to hundreds of miles of turquoise-blue canals that flow into the Gulf of Mexico, and is less than an hour drive from Fort Myers and the Florida Everglades. Your vacation home becomes your own beach bungalow and the perfect place to kick back and unwind. Just a few minute walk from the beach, enjoy great surfing, swimming, and sunning during the day, then return to your vacation rental at night and grill outdoors. Hiking, biking, and golf are just a few popular activities in Cape Coral, which boasts an ideal climate for outdoor recreation.
Here are a few more fun ideas for your trip:
-Play a round of golf: Spend a day at Coral Oak Golf Course, one of the area's most secluded courses.
-Visit the waterpark: Sun Splash Family Waterpark in Cape Coral offers 30-foot water slides, tunnels, sand volleyball games. It is a perfect day getaway for you and your family.
-Enjoy the Arts Festival: Each year Cape Coral hosts the Cape Coral Festival of the Arts, a two-day event filled with artists, craftsmen, sidewalk sales and shows. The event draws over 80,000 people and features over 300 vendor booths, filled with paintings, sculptures, stained glass, and more. The event has a rock-climbing wall and bungee jumping, as well as food and drink vendors scattered throughout the fair.
-Play on the beach: The beaches of Cape Coral are pristine and uncrowded, and offer a perfect place to lie on the soft white sand, and watch the waves roll in.
