Welcome to Cape Coral
Cape Coral is the largest city in Lee County. A true boater’s community, the city was developed with 400 miles of dredged canals that have direct access to the Gulf. Divided into NE, NW, SE, and SW quadrants, the Cape still has a number of undeveloped lots. However, head over the Midpoint or Cape Coral bridge on a Friday evening and you’ll find restaurants and bars buzzing with local residents and visitors alike. In fact, the Cape has earned the title of the fastest-growing city in America by Forbes!

More About Cape Coral
There are two bridges from Fort Myers to Cape Coral, or “The Cape” as locals call it. You can take the Midpoint Bridge or the Cape Coral Bridge and enter the Cape from the east, or you can drive southwest of North Fort Myers to enter Cape from the north. The division of four quadrants is a good indicator of how large the Cape, especially as you start driving around
Downtown Cape is the southern tip of Cape Coral, where you’ll find good eats such as Ford’s Garage, Fish Tale Grill and Blu Agave. Popular for live music performances, Dixie Roadhouse brings a number of headliners to downtown Cape Coral pretty often. A number of bars and lounges line Del Prado and Cape Coral Parkway, including a Cigar Bar and other fun stops along your way.
Waterfront Views Are Cool Too
Looking for a waterfront restaurant? There are a few good options to choose from as you head south to the coastline of Cape and the Caloosahatchee River. The Westin Cape Coral Resort and Marina has a beautiful waterfront view that draws in a number of events and conference-goers each year. Walk the marina docks and “ooh and ahh” at the high dollar yachts mixed in with a handful of nice cruisers and sailboats as well.
Cape Canal Homes
Waterfront views continue with a number of residential streets in the Cape having deep water canal access to the Gulf of Mexico. It doesn’t get much better than that. Most homes along the SE, SW and even the NE of Cape have a boat dock and lift behind the property, with quick and easy access to the river and Gulf waters. Some of the areas best fishing is right off the southern tip of Cape Coral and the San Carlos Bay just before you get to the Sanibel Causeway.
Become Festival Regulars
Get on Amazon and order yourself an Irish kilt, an American flag bathing-suit, an “I love mangoes” shirt, and some lederhosen. Seriously, Cape is home to a number of annual events including the Cape Coral Irish Festival in March, Red, White and Boom in July, Mango Mania in July, and Oktoberfest in October. There’s more where that came from, there’s also the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta, Shark-A-Thon Fishing Tournament, the Coconut Festival and of course the Christmas Boat Parade - each with its share of holiday spirit and passionate volunteers showing you how to have a good time in the Cape.
