The city of Cape Coral is situated on Florida’s beautiful southern Gulf Coast bordered in the south and east by the Caloosahatchee River and in the west by Matlacha Pass. Notably, the city of Fort Myers lies just across the Caloosahatchee River to the east, Naples 40 miles south, and Punta Gorda 30 miles to the north.
Cape Coral is a boater’s paradise boasting over 400 miles (640 km) of canals, more than any other city in the world, most of which are navigable and many have access to the Gulf of Mexico. And with an average of 355 days of sunshine each year, outdoor enthusiast will enjoy a wide variety of activities from any of our over 30 recreational parks, several ecological preserves with elevated nature trails, or seven golf courses.
But Cape Coral is known for more than just bird watching, golf, or fishing. Cape Coral’s cultural assets include the Historical Museum, the Art Studio, the Cape Coral Art League, and Cultural Park Theater. In addition are several regional arts and performance venues in the immediate area, including the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
