Cape Coral

In August, my wife, Katie and I headed to Cape Coral on the west coast of Florida for ten days of relaxing and unwinding.
Cape Coral was founded in 1957 as a “master-planned, pre-platted community” over 120 square miles and is particularly notable for the over 400 miles of navigable canals.
We stayed in a villa that backs onto the canal network, in a particularly envious spot only two miles from where the canals meet the Caloosahatchee River, which provides access to waterfront restaurants, the beautiful beaches of Sanibel Island and then onto the Gulf of Mexico.
Cape Coral is also blessed with a great variety of wildlife – dolphins and stingrays may accompany you through the canals whilst in the wetlands and nature trails you may come across wading birds, witness birds of prey patrolling from above and always keep an eye out for alligators.
