Hello and welcome to my website about Cape Coral, Florida - a terrific waterfront destination in Southwest Florida for those who like swimming, boating, fishing, golfing, and lots of sunshine!
Imagine yourself relaxing by the pool with a refreshing mango smoothie under bright and sunny skies.
Or, maybe you're at the beach watching a beautiful sunset.
How about you're catching a fish dinner in aqua green waters, or sailing while dolphins frolic nearby, or out on the golf course, feeling peaceful while palm trees sway in the breeze.........
.......... in January?!
Do you dream of vacationing at the beach looking for shells, eating fresh seafood everyday, going parasailing?
Is your idea of fun a picnic on a boat?
Or have you been wanting to make a permanent move so that you can enjoy the warm weather year-round?
We had all of those dreams and decided to take the plunge in 2006 by moving from Connecticut to the Cape.

Did you know that airplanes used to take off and land on SW 47th Terrace when Cape Coral was first being developed? And, did you know there was an actual airport near what is now Del Prado and SE 21st Street? It had a control tower and 2 lighted runways. It was basically used for sales flights to show prospective buyers lots around the Cape as well as some commercial flights to Marco Island and Miami. The airport closed in 1965 once the Cape Coral Bridge opened in 1964 and flights were operated from Page Field in Ft Myers. Go to my Cape Coral History page to see more historical information and photos!

SWFL is the lightning capital of the USA. We have lighting on a daily basis through rainy season. This past summer, people on Ft Myers Beach were struck and killed as they sought cover in a rainstorm. Lightning can even strike if it's cloudy but not raining. Weather can change in an instant, to help you and your family stay safe, lightning detection apps such as "WeatherBug Spark" and "Lightning Finder" are available for smartphones.
