Cape Coral - The city of water ways: About 50 years ago this peninsula was still considered as the back of the beyond, but in 1957 life came to this area. The brothers Jack & Leonard Rosen purchased the land and started its development. Never in the history of Florida as many machines to move the ground have been in use at the same time as back then in Cape Coral. On a length of 640 km water ways have been dogged out, while the soil was used as filling material to drain the marshland. The first developments arose in the south of Cape Coral, along the Caloosahatchee River, the area where you find the yacht club today. The first settlers in 1958 still had to drive more than 30 km to buy a dozen eggs.
In 1970 Cape Coral was pronounced a city. The number of inhabitants had grown to 11,470. Today, more than 115,000 souls live here, mainly elderly retirees and young families. The biggest part of the newly arriving inhabitants is formed by Europeans, with Germans and English taking over first place.
Boca Grande and the offshore islands : By the old train depot, which brought the industry to this small village close to the southern tip of the Gasparilla Island, is located Boca Grande, a friendly community that has developed into getaway for the rich and the beautiful, but also for mere mortals . Five beaches line the Western part of the island and a noble inn decorates the outskirts of the village. The rustic Cabbage Key Inn & Restaurant - visitors appreciate its informal elegance, the pretty shops and the miles-long bicycle paths on the island.
Offshore are located North Captiva, Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key and Useppa Island, which fascinate numerous visitors of all ages, mobility and interests. North Captiva offers unspoilt beaches and a great number of large luxury villas as well as two restaurants; on Useppa you find the Collier Inn, a marvelous botanical path and the Barbara Sumwalt Museum (small but sweet).
The island of Sanibel: These two islands are part of the Barrier Islands and are connected with the mainland with a 5 km long causeway at the estuary of the Caloosahatchee River into the Gulf of Mexico.
This causeway lighthouse on Sanibel reaches from the most Southern parts of Fort Myers until the Pine Island Sound.
Those islands, full of palms and other trees, have been created by the nature as protection from the mainland. They are not only famous for their beaches and the incredible variety of sea shells on their shores, but also for their dislike of too many interventions of the modern world.
For example, there are no traffic lights on these islands and the buildings on Sanibel “are not higher than the highest palm tree'.
