Cape Coral Reviews

408 reviews
All Categories
Cape Coral is a friendly, diversified growing city. The city is always looking for ways to make things better, safer, greener, and healthier. Adding new parks and bike trails for instance. It's location is one that is close to beaches, other cities and attractions that are a day trip away. Stores, schools, and shopping are such that they are close to neighborhoods. Housing is sometimes a problem due to the real estate crash, but is turning around. In my neighborhood alone, there have been about 20 new homes and duplex built in the 2 years I have lived here. I think Cape Coral is a great place to live--fairly inexpensive, easy to find good shopping, schools, and jobs. And there is no snow!

The sunsets are the most beautiful in the world here. Cape Coral is notorious for Snow Birds and seniors. It's not the best place for a young adult but it's a friendly city for raising a young family. The nightlife is pretty much non-existent, but the day life is quite a lot of fun! There's art festivals, mom and pap restaurants, and the Yacht Club. There's plenty to do during the day! It is a paradise. I wouldn't live anywhere else.
Cape Coral is constantly lookigndoe ways to improve our quality of life, accessibility to modern medical advances, and entertainment both with nature walks and hosting events, such as Coconut Festival at SunSplash (our large water park and event center). Cape Coral does not shy away from citizen concerns and promises to look into project asepects from Council Meetings are fulfilled and sent to the Youth Council for a younger analysis of the project. The City admires proofreading of events, to ensure that our city is exciting and teeming with positive news.
