I love cape coral Florida because it is beautiful and warm. I love that it is right on the water. I love going boating in the canals. The prices at the store and restaurants are very reasonable. It is actually a pretty inexpensive place to live. We hope to move to Cape Coral Florida when we retire.

I love that you get to enjoy the sunshine and water. We like to go boating when we are there. I loved that there are lots of things to do, but you don't have the tourists like you do in other parts of Florida.
