Cape Coral Real Estate

Living in Cape Coral, located on the northern banks of the Caloosahatchee River, is all about the water. The city, with a population of over 180,000 people, has over 400 miles of canals. In fact, the city’s nickname is Waterfront Wonderland. The city has several beachfronts, including one at the Yacht Club Community Park and another at the Four Freedoms Park.

The Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve is a great place to bird watch. Eagles and herons are regularly spotted there as well as snakes and tortoises. Kayakers can tour the mangrove marshland of the Caloosahatchee and the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, keeping an eye out for manatees, dolphins, pelicans, and other creatures in their natural habitat.

Residents rave about the low cost-of-living and the low unemployment rate in Cape Coral. They praise the area’s schools, the friendliness of the community, and the quiet, slow pace of life.

Families can enjoy the Sun Splash Family Waterpark, 14 acres of water slides, lazy rivers and pools. In addition, Walt Disney World in Orlando is only a three-hour car ride away.
