I have heard that there is some kind of unspoken fued or rivalry between people who live in cape coral vs. people who live in Fort Myers. What is the deal with that?

I don't know of any rivalry out side of high school sports. Even then it was Red (North Ft Myers) and Green (Fort Myers) In the 80s Cape Coral got its first high school, Blue (Cape Coral)

I have been here 6 years and heard of no rivalry. Some people are like "I don't go across the bridge" but that never seemed like a rivalry, just obtuseness.

I'd consider it a "passionate preference". My cousin moved down here three years after I got here. He moved to CC becasue that's where I was. He couldnt stand it, but was just fine with Ft Myers. And vise versa, I couldnt live in Ft Myers, just the way things are laid out. CC stinks anymore, but I'd still rather live in the Cape than any where else in SW Florida. But nobody's beating anybody up over it on the streets

I think it's like an east side west side things you see sometimes in areas. Just preferences really, but no real rivalry.

I remember hearing this late 80's, early 90's. Not sure, but vaguely remember CC people considered as snobs. Back then hardly any stores on the cape, everyone pretty much had to shop over Ft. Myers. This was back before Veterns Pkwy was even there or the bridge for that matter. Now we are mostly called Cape Coma, LOL

I've lived in Southwest FL for over 15 years and never heard of any feud between the cities.
