What Bert Has To Say About Cape Coral-Fort Myers Metro Area


Fort Myers, on the southern Florida Gulf Coast, is a quiet city famous for its palm-tree lined streets. Not a typical beach town, it nonetheless maintains a tropical flavor, attracts some tourists, and is home to several baseball spring-training camps. It is also home to a large number of retirees. Offshore islands Sanibel and Captiva are more touristy, although both are restrained in development compared to other areas in the state. Cape Coral, just to the southwest, is a relatively large and new planned community even more popular with retirees, 115 square miles in all, located along canals and the waterfront. Although Fort Myers is better known, Cape Coral is actually the larger community.
