Cape Coral Reviews

My wife and I moved here 3 years ago from new york and will never go back. The Cape is booming! It's quiet, low crime, plenty of parks and if you love the water and beach you will be in heaven. Schools are good and people are generally nice. You do have some shady parts of the city but most of it is single homes with families or retirees. Downtown is about to get a major facelift which should help the economy. Convinient to Ft. Myers,Tampa and Naples. Wish we'd moved here years ago!

I own a home here in Cape Coral and live year round. I love that this city is growing and home building is returning. I love the revitalization of the downtown area. With so much growth though, I think the city need to improve roads and build more! We are living with infrastructure from decades ago. Allow more business, big businesses. This area could be phenomenal with the right management and growth. Let's make it happen!
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!
