Waterfront Wonderland in Cape Coral, Florida

Cape Coral, a Florida city located between Miami and Tampa, might as well be known as the American Venice since it possesses more than 400 miles of navigable canals, more than any other city in the world. These canals mean that many residents live directly on the waterfront and are able to reach the Gulf of Mexico by navigating the canals to reach the Caloosahatchee River. Three public boat launch facilities are available both to residents and to tourists staying in holiday rentals in Cape Coral . Once on the water, visitors can explore sports fishing grounds, rookeries where birds are known to breed, and the small tropical islands that dot the Gulf.

Ecological preserves in the area mean that local wildlife is on ample display. Due to the swampy terrain of the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve, elevated walkways have been provided for tourists. Using these, visitors can explore the extensive mangrove forests and get a feel for the natural habitat of coastal Florida.

Another distinction of Cape Coral is its sheer size; it occupies 120 square miles, more than enough room for its seven golf courses, 30 recreational parks, and vast expanses of Gulf Coast beaches nearby. Vacationers who prefer activities more cultural in nature can visit the city's historical museum or watch community actors performing in Cultural Park Theater, a venue that seats nearly 200. There is also an artists' studio and the Cape Coral Art League, which regularly puts on shows.
