Cape Coral News and Events
Cape Coral, Florida
Sun splashed days and balmy nights mean funtastic playtime fantasies come true in Cape Coral. Sandcastles, beaches, boats and bait fill leisure time in this coastal community that boasts more than 400 miles of canals, plus lakes and a mega-river. The city has a water-filled treat of its own design. Sun Splash Family Waterpark offers more than two dozen wet and dry attractions on 15 tropical acres. Loll in a tube while gentle currents take you on a sightseeing voyage around the park. Or grip the sides and grit your teeth while you pitch and plummet in Cape Fear's 225-foot black tunnel.
Prefer less orchestrated activities? Drift down to the Yacht and Racquet Club and let the kids frolic at the riverfront while you drop a line from the pier nearby.
Explore the Natural Side of Cape Coral by Kayak
The Kayak Shack at Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve is currently open for adventure and the weather is perfect for spending some time outdoors. You can rent a single or tandem kayak on the weekends and paddle away the stress of the outside world in this beautiful mangrove preserve. Paddle quietly though mangrove tunnels to the portage trail where you can stop for a picnic lunch at the Eagle Scout picnic area and then continue on the other side of the 800 foot portage if you so choose. For more information, call the Kayak Shack during weekend hours at (239) 574-7395 or Rotary Park (Environmental Recreation) during the week at (239) 549-4606.
