If you’re looking for a place where you can spend your sun-soaked days filled with recreation and adventure, set your sights on Cape Coral, Florida. Located due west of Fort Myers along Florida’s Gulf Coast, the town offers everything you could hope for as a beach destination.
There are numerous reasons to choose Cape Coral as your vacation destination. In fact, south Florida has so much to offer that it has become one of the fastest-growing regions in the country. Its wonderful climate, numerous areas preserved in their natural state, waterways, and recreation opportunities offer something for everyone. Just as different aspects will appeal to different visitors, so you will find that Cape Coral offers such a selection as to have Cape Coral lodging to suit every taste and budget.
Once you choose the Cape Coral inn or Cape Coral bed and breakfast to utilize as your home base, how will you spend your time? Most visitors make a point of spending much of their time on the water. With over 400 miles of canals, Cape Coral is second only to Venice, Italy in the number of waterways winding through the city. Many of the canals will bring you to the Gulf of Mexico, while others lead inland to lakes or the Caloosahatchee River. Throughout, you’ll find plenty of spots for fishing, either from a boat or off a pier.
Your Cape Coral vacation rentals will provide ready access to all sorts of water fun. You might head out into the Gulf on a powerboat or sailboat, or ply the intercoastal waters while windsurfing or water skiing. If you’re looking for kid-centered fun, right near our Cape Coral hotels you can visit Sun Splash Family Waterpark. Here you’ll find 15 acres of pools, water slides, and roller coasters. Since the weather is warm year-round, you’re likely to have a good day for this visit no matter when you travel. Not that you have to be moving to appreciate this area: you might simply spend your day soaking up the sun on a wide sandy beach.
Perhaps you’ll venture a little farther. You might spend a day away from your Cape Coral Inn canoeing or kayaking around the shoreline of Lovers Key State Park, a pristine barrier island, or you can join a biking or hiking tour along nature trails here. Cape Coral hotels also provide the perfect base for day trips to Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers Beach, or Cabbage Key. Additionally, Everglades National Park lies just to the southeast. Here you can take an air boat ride deep into uninhabited areas, perhaps spotting alligators or manatees along the way.
However you spend your vacation days, you’ll be glad you chose such a beautiful, tropical spot. You’ll be especially pleased that you were wise enough to choose one of the fine Cape Coral vacation rentals to stay at.
