Cape Coral Quick Facts
A Traveler's Guide to Cape CoralCape Coral is a city that is located on the west coast of the state of Florida in Lee County. The city was founded in 1957 by real estate developers Leonard and Jack Rosen who purchased the land and began to develop it as a pre-planned city. The city is famous for its many canals throughout the city, in fact it has more navigable canals than any other city on earth. The city was constructed and then the Cape Coral Bridge was built over the Caloosahatchee River which enabled people to drive to the city directly instead of taking a roundabout way.
The city was incorporated in 1970 and it began to grow quickly. Originally the city was inhabited mostly by retired persons, but recently the city has begun to attract younger professionals and their families. The canals around the city provide access to the Gulf of Mexico by boat from parts of the city that are far inland. This has caused Cape Coral to be one of the most popular boating cities in the state.
Cape Coral has a subtropical climate, which means lots of sunshine with warm temperatures year round. Summer temperatures generally get into the 90's Fahrenheit, but winter temperatures rarely dip below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

In addition to the water park there are over 30 parks throughout the city and 7 golf courses.
