Cape Coral is called the Venice of Florida, has over 400 miles of canals in which you can boat from your own backyard. The majority of the canals are freshwater, however, there is a large majority which offers Gulf Access, meaning you can take a boat and get out to the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, and Captiva. Cape Coral is the third largest City in Florida in square miles. It was developed by the Rosen brothers in 1960 and has been growing ever since. It offers a mixture of single-family residential, condos, multi-family as well as commercial properties and vacant land. While Cape Coral is more a bedroom community to Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and Estero, there are still plenty of the larger corporations, restaurants and such who call Cape Coral home.
Cape Coral is located about 40 minutes from the Southwest Florida International Airport which offers many flights from Canada as well a Europe, especially Germany. Many folks from both Canada and Germany and Europe either Holiday here in Cape Coral or own a home which they use and then rent out to others to Holiday in. We are also beginning to see a large amount of South American coming to Florida and Southwest Florida too.
