Cape Coral is in Lee County, Florida and nestled between the Caloosahatchee River and Matlacha Pass. Since its inception, Cape Coral has been known as a “safe and sleepy” community that is perfect for retirement.

Over the course of a few years, beginning in 1958, canals were dug, homes and businesses were built and the city was born. Celebrities were brought in to “pitch” the Cape Coral lifestyle. Through the 1950’s and early 1960’s, development moved quickly. When the Cape Coral bridge was opened in early 1964, it opened up new opportunities for growth and employment. Still today, many residents of Cape Coral cross the bridges to work in Fort Myers.
