Cape Coral is a city in Florida that's home to canal routes and mangroves.
Top things to do include kayaking around the Sirenia Vista Park (and spotting manatees if you’re lucky), exploring the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, where you can kayak through the mangroves and spot tons of different species of birds, and visiting the Cape Coral Historical Society & Museum, which details the history of the city.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a day of family fun, head to the Sun Splash Family Waterpark, where you can enjoy slides and rides, or the Lakes Regional Park, where you can do some freshwater fishing and eat in the many picnic spots.
The best time to visit Cape Coral is in the spring months of April and May when the crowds are low and the temperature is warm, without being too hot.
Vacationers flock to Cape Coral in Southwest Florida every year to enjoy the beautiful beaches, well-kept parks and the canals it is best known for. There are more than 400 miles of canals which is more than any other city in the world -- even Venice, Italy!
Most of the canals can be sailed, kayaked or rafted down and access the Gulf of Mexico.
Nature-lovers will find lots to occupy their time in Cape Coral. The resort is a great place to spot those incredible-looking creatures of the ocean – manatees! The Sirenia Vista Park has lots of kayak routes including a route to Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve where tourists can spot birds amid the mangroves. Travel further north to the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve and spot herons and ibis living wild.
The Lakes Regional Park is another great place to spot the native wildlife and enjoy the landscape. This 279-acre public park south of Fort Myers, Florida, opened in 1984 and is run by the Lee County Department of Parks and Recreation. The park was named after its main feature: 158 acres of man-made freshwater lakes.
For history buffs, the Cape Coral Historical Society & Museum explores the background of the area.
If golfing is on the vacation to do list, then check out the Coral Oaks Golf Course for a round or two. For children (and adults!) there is a water park close by. The Sunsplash Water Park has more than 14 acres of water slides and rides for everyone to enjoy. Opening hours change throughout the season though so check the times it will be open before heading there for a day out.

It figures that with a seasonal resort like Cape Coral the cheapest time to stay will be midweek. Arrive on a Tuesday or Wednesday for the best deals but avoid checking in on a Saturday or Sunday unless you’re happy to pay a higher price. Weekends are busier as families from nearby areas flock to the beach so vacationers wanting to escape crowds should try to arrive and leave around the weekend.
