Yacht Club Beach - I love our little beach in Cape Coral, it's close, perfect for families, and you've got to go to the Sunset Celebration!
Located on the Caloosahatchee River, there are lots of fun activities for everyone, at the beach and nearby community center.
Even though our beach is small, it's perfect for families, and we don't have problems with partying spring-breakers, which is nice during March and April.
We have plenty of soft white sand and sunshine to please everyone.
Our beach is only a 15-minute drive from my house and the parking is free. You may end up being even closer!
We are a homeschooling family and one day during school, I was dying to go to the beach.
So, we decided to take our homeschooling there and whoop it up a bit ....... we grabbed our books, bikinis, beach gear, and hit the sand!
After getting some work done, we took our first break and had BLT's for lunch at KC's River Stop, the beach's snack bar.
One of my favorite things to eat there is the skewered shrimp ...... mmmmmmmmm, delicious!
They also serve burgers, hot dogs, fries, nachos, and more.
It's so nice to sit outside in the sun and see the views of Yacht Club Beach and the river.
Live music is played on the weekends.
A beach is not only a super place to learn about marine biology, but it also offers a refreshing change to school at home.
Between lessons, you can take a swim, build sandcastles, take a walk on the pier, or go to the playground ........... all the things you like to do at any day at the seashore.
As the afternoon wound down, we were excited to see who would perform at that evening at the Sunset Celebration.
The celebration happens the first Wednesday of the month from 5-8PM.
We've been fortunate to see hula dancers, fire eaters, and all kinds of musicians perform.
To add to the fun, we met up with friends who brought pizza for dinner and enjoyed the music while we had a picnic on the beach.
After dinner, I walked on the pier, then relaxed, did some people watching, looked on as the kids ran around meeting up with their friends, and took this video:
During the celebration, there's a nice little craft show outside the beach pavilion. We like to go check out the crafts before the sun gets too low.
Tables are lined up on the sidewalk between the beach pavilion and the parking lot.
It's fun to see familiar vendors and find out who the new ones are.
Vendors also have tables set up inside the pavilion.
You'll find jewelry, clothing, food, herbs, plants, art, crafts, and gift items, or even tables set up by local businesses.
Make sure you check out my favorite vendor Jimmy of Arctic Body and Bath, I love his glycerine soaps!
He's always there with his soaps, aromatherapy oils and accessories, foaming milk bath, Dead Sea salts, Body Polish, and Soothing Foot Lotion ....... they make great gifts for that special person, or for yourself.
We were lucky because there was also a car show that evening ........ and I have to say, my favorites were the red cars and schnazzy orange one!
We then went back to the beach to watch the sunset ....... which was spectacular!
In this video you can see the sun dropping below the horizon
By then, the crowds have thinned out, but Yacht Club Beach is still nice for a last little swim or a walk as the light fades.
As you can see, our Cape Coral Beach has lots of fun all day long!
