There are some wonderful settings right across the United States, but the fabulous waterfront development at Cape Coral in Florida, certainly takes some beating. Previously it was just a 100 square mile area of land referred to as Redfish Point, and was bought by a couple of forward thinking brothers in 1957, but even they would have been astounded at the pace in which it took off. Helped by National media promotional coverage, plane loads of visitors poured into the place, fascinated at its potential.
By 1970 the city had become the second largest land mass across the whole state and the properties continue to attract the rich and famous. Surprisingly though, the prices remain exceptionally good for the buying market, meaning that for example, Cape Coral Florida condos for sale can be picked up at remarkably bargain prices, whether they be situated overlooking the water or a golf course.
The appeal is glaringly obvious, with wall to wall sunshine more or less guaranteed all year round, the communities that make up the city offer fantastic views and an opportunity to live a lifestyle, usually reserved for dreams. The Cape Coral Florida condos for sale are impeccable in appearance, always clean, with stunning architecture, stylishly furnished and beautifully landscaped. It is a tropical paradise, with its palm trees, luxury spas, magnificent beaches, and over 400 miles of canals, all sitting on the mainland, between the Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico.
Of course, as the city has grown, so too has the surroundings and the appreciation of the need to offer residents and visitors some recreational facilities and the attractions around the area are of a real diverse nature and provide something for everyone. One of the biggest draws is the Sun Splash Family Water Park, set in 15 acres and containing dozens of great white-knuckle rides. Then there is Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve, which has canoeing and kayaking and a terrific observation pier. Cultural Park plays host to a theatre and museum, whilst Seahawk Park is the home to the model aircraft club. The Strausser BMX Sports Complex is popular with the kids, and the Yacht Club Community Park provides tennis and shuffleboard courts, and an excellent fishing pier.
There are annual events taking place during most months, for example in January there is the Cape Coral Festival of Arts, and the Tour de Cape Bicycle race. March plays host to the Sounds of Jazz concert, in May it is the turn of the Cinco de Mayo Block Party whilst in October, it is time to enjoy some fine beers at the Octoberfest.
