About Cape Coral
Known as America's Little Venice, Florida's Coral Bay was founded in the late 1950's by the brothers Rosen. Long after the intrepid pair began dredging a broad canal network in what was previously scrub and swampland, the area now known as Cape Coral has rapidly expanded into a sprawling mini-metropolis. Today Cape Coral has nearly every upscale amenity to please the discerning visitor.
While most of the original attractions that the Rosens invented to attract its initial residents have long since been torn down in the name of progress, the city still developed its own unique personality. Much of Cape Coral's charm relies on its coastal location paired with its unique canal system.
Cape Coral residents have numerous docking facilities as well as a chic local yacht club near the posh Coral Oaks Golf Course. Those without a boat or set of golf clubs can spend their leisure time in the Sun Splash Family Waterpark, or course long stretches of immaculately maintained Florida beaches.
Of course, there are plenty of things to see and do for visitors or residents who are uninterested in aquatic fun. Everything from well-stocked outdoor markets specializing in everything from fresh seafood to newly picked produce might tempt one to try their hand at cooking, though the plethora of restaurants serving exquisite cuisine from all corners of the world certainly deserve a try too. In addition to the culinary arts, the diversity of art galleries, studios, and theaters guarantees those craving creative displays never have an empty calendar.
