Lotsa Restaurants and Cape Coral Arts Studio

I hope you had a Happy 4th of July!

Tropical Storm Debby came through last month and wreaked some havoc in our area after 4 days of rain. We got around 5" and there was a bit of flooding in Cape Coral, more in Ft Myers, but not nearly as much as Northern Florida got.

It always storms around the summer solstice ever since I've moved here, so you may want to plan any June vacation accordingly, and avoid coming for several days before and after June 21st.

This past month, I wrote lots of pages about restaurants, new ones that I'd never been to before and ones I've been meaning to write pages on for awhile.

We also went to Captiva each weekend to stay at all the places, dine at all the restaurants, and do some fun activities so I can build my Captiva website come next January. We had a blast!

But first, the Cape Coral Arts Studio:

The Cape Coral Arts Studio offers classes year round for kids and adults in drawing, painting, pottery, photography, and more.

They have an art gallery with student's work, art supply store, and gift shop showcasing student's work.

Sign up and learn something new!

I've found a new favorite restaurant ....... to add to my many others! You've got to go to Brew Babies, they have a beautiful outdoor terrace, live jazz music, and amazing food.

The award-winning Wine and Roses has great Italian food and pizza. This popular restaurant is located on Cape Coral Pkwy.

La Terraza 47 serves Spanish and Mexican food along with dancing and live music. They have indoor dining and an outdoor terrace.

Ribs, ribs, ribs ......... yum! Rib City has ribs, pulled pork, and more BBQ dishes. Make sure you also get their cheese fries with bacon and ranch dressing!

Go to Iguana Mia for tasty Mexican food, you get a free meal and dessert if you go on your birthday!

Origins Coffee has the best spicy chai latte in the Cape! Go for breakfast and lunch or a snack.

All the above restaurants are on or just off of Cape Coral Pkwy, but now I want to tell you about a place on the northern tip of Pine Island in Bokeelia.

Captain Cons is a greasy spoon with delicious chowder and pie, and some of the most gorgeous sunsets, so plan to go up around dinner time so you can feast your stomach ....... and your eyes!

Heading back to Cape Coral, go over to Santa Barbara Blvd, just north of Veterans.

In the same shopping plaza are 2 casual family restaurants that serve up meals quickly and inexpensively.

Jasons Deli has soups, salads, pasta, baked potatoes, and sandwiches. Everyone gets a free ice cream with their order!

Il Primo has the best chicken wings in Cape Coral, and pizza in a family-friendly dining room with TV's showing sports and kids movies.

Pic 'O the Month

For those of you who have read Weird Cape Coral, but haven't found the treasure yet, here are some hints:

Look for 3 places in the ebook where it says "treasure" in blue. Click on it, because each is a link to one of 3 pages on my website.

Each page is a place that I think is a treasure in Cape Coral.

Once you figure out the 3 places, email me from my Contact Me page and I will send you a password to a secret page with more information about buying real estate here in Cape Coral.

Have fun.......if you need help -> Contact Me
