Get wet or stay dry, Cape Coral knows how to bring the fun

Tucked away in southwest Florida, Cape Coral sits on a massive peninsula, surrounded by the Caloosahatchee River to the south and east, and the Matlacha Pass to the west. No matter where you stay, Cape Coral vacation rentals always put you near at least 1 body of water. Dubbed the "Waterfront Wonderland," the area is home to more than 400 miles of navigable waterways, particularly canals. Although the region boasts a host of major attractions, from museums to theme parks, gulf and riverfront beaches invite you to simply relax and soak up Florida's sunny skies.

Walking (or rowing) in a watery wonderland

Surrounded by water at every turn, boat tours, and kayaking and canoeing excursions remain popular pastimes throughout the region. The Yacht Club Community Park has a pier and a public beach on the Caloosahatchee River, where you can swim and fish the day away. If you prefer to keep dry, the city also features numerous golf courses and tennis courts. Cape Coral's city calendar includes an annual Independence Day fireworks festival known as Red, White, and Boom, the largest Fourth of July display in southwest Florida. Downtown Cape Coral also hosts a weekly farmers' market from October through May.

From manatees to museums, Cape Coral entertains everyone

There's still plenty of nature to enjoy at Sirenia Vista Park, where kayak routes travel past wading birds and playful manatees. If you stay in a Cape Coral vacation rental from March through September, you can cool off at Sun Splash Family Waterpark, home to numerous waterslides, a lazy river, and a kids' play area. For a more cultural experience, the city's thriving arts landscape includes numerous galleries and theaters. Local museums give you the chance to honor heroes at the Southwest Florida Military Museum and Library, while the Cape Coral Historical Society and Museum explores the city's storied past.

There's a reason they call it the Sunshine State

No matter when you book your Cape Coral vacation rental, you're almost certain to enjoy sunny skies. It's no surprise that the area's summers are hot and humid, with temperatures in the low 90s. But you also better pack an umbrella as Cape Coral receives about 54 inches of rain each year, most of which falls from June through September. Hurricane season runs a similar pattern, usually lasting between June and November. Comfortable year-round conditions include winters with daytime highs in the 70s, and spring and fall temperatures in the 80s.

Cape Coral: a tranquil land of islands and ibises

Cape Coral's water-soaked scenery sees canals, rivers, lakes, bays, and sounds winding along a lush landscape filled with swamps, mangroves, wetlands, and barrier islands. While the waters are teeming with manatees, gopher tortoises, dolphins, and alligators, the shorelines are dotted with seabirds, including herons and ibises. These feathered friends are in good company, as Cape Coral is also home to Florida's largest population of burrowing owls. Many area parks offer a glimpse into the region's wildlife, including Rotary Park, where raptors, butterflies, and foxes all roam free.
