Truly one of the unique communities in Florida, Cape Coral is a master-planned community on the pristine shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The city has the distinction of having more miles of canals than any other city in the world, and nearly every home here is on a canal. Most people from chilly climates flock to Cape Coral hotels in winter to get a taste of summer. It's also easy to get to as Cape Coral is served by flights to Fort Myers.

The Gulf of Mexico is your playground when you are out and about in Cape Coral. Right on the Gulf, there's swimming, surfing, beach combing, or beach napping on the white sands. Another popular option is to rent a charter boat for a picnic out on the gulf, which will allow you to fish or go swimming with the dolphins. Local captains know all the best spots, and there are plenty of charters to choose from just about everywhere in this town, where nearly every home has a boat ramp! However, if you easily get sick of beautiful waterfront views, watch out - even the cheap hotels in Cape Coral have a water view!
