Cape Coral offers over 400 miles of waterfront, canal front property. Boasting more canals than any place in the world, including Venice, Cape Coral is waterfront living! The City is situated perfectly for Gulf access from many of those waterfront properties. Interestingly enough, you can also access the Atlantic from any of the gulf access properties by taking the Caloosahatchee River to the east instead of to the west.
Cape Coral is a relatively new city. The first homes in Cape Coral were built in the late 50's and early 60's. Being on the Caloosahatchee River, the waters are protected from the severe weather of the Gulf. Sanibel Island and Ft. Myers Beach face the gulf waters and do not have the advantage of barrier islands that create a level of protection. This makes boating easy and close enough to boat to the Gulf in as little as 25 minutes. We really have the best of all worlds here in Paradise!!
With the Gulf and the Atlantic reachable by boat, it takes little imagination to understand why Ft Myers and Cape Coral are extensive boating areas. Home owners who like to have a view, water sports, tropical landscaping, fish, pools and an easy lifestyle all find it on their waterfront property in Cape Coral and Fort Myers.
The Cape Coral downtown area is in the process of redeveloping and re-vitalizing itself into a waterfront paradise. The CRA is (Community Redevelopment Association) is working to create a downtown filled with ambiance and interest for home owners and tourists alike.
Fort Myers has created an incredible downtown area for those who like to walk, mingle and simply enjoy ! They offer an "art walk" once a month and interesting exhibits at the convention center! They also offer a music walk once a month as well! Offering plenty of "night life" for those who love to be out and about, Ft. Myers has it all.
If you love boating, fishing, golfing, swimming, biking, working in the yard and beautiful sunsets, you'll love the Gulf Coast of Florida.
