Intelligent and intellectual residents of Cape Coral must be suffering seeing the rough way of living and enjoying life in Cape Coral. Nature and living beautifully has no meaning in Cape Coral.

In Cape Coral there are many weekly rented vacation homes right in the middle of residential areas. If they did not have a big sign right upfront with a telephone # on it, they would not be like a torn in the eye.

To save/make money is Cape Coral theme. Related to real estate lies still continue.

Ugly landscaping, ugly cheaply made houses. Disturbing, unnatural grid of streets without trees..or even decent landscaping.

Canals so ugly to look at...a stupid way of altering natural enviroment.

As one arrives, the instant wintnessing of racism toward Spanish speaking residents ads to ugliness of this area.

Low class European tourists filling up cheap restaurants reminding one of destruction of beautiful European resorts by their invasion and demand for cheap entertainment and lodging. This will all happen in Cape Coral.

Because Cape Coral is on the road of becoming another cheap European tourist resort, prostitution will follow and don't be surprised..this has happened in many other cities in many parts of Europe..Spain, Italy, ..

No matter how cheap the houses are right now, prices will fall even further.
Except for cheap tourists, Cape Coral has nothing to rely on economically.

And Cape Coral is different than any other city around here?????? I would live here over Fort Myers.... OR NAPLES.

AND you state racism, but you are being a hippacrite with what you said about europeans...

I agree it's not a land of beauty, but safer than some areas around. ALSO it depends on where in Cape Coral you are. I think the Pelican Blvd are is really nice... Florida is about ugly in most areas, flat, and boring. But there are some really beautiful areas too.

Cape Coral= Port St Lucie with canals and without commuters. Just another one of those General Development scam cities that is finally getting some attention. One of my least favorite cities in Florida. Actually, PSL is a lot nicer. I don't think Naples is bad at all...I wouldn't live there but it's pretty looking and has it's niche.

I know someone who used to live on Pelican Blvd in Cape Coral, south of Cape Coral Pkwy, got a really cheap house and decided to commute all the way out here. That are is OK, it reminds me of a moderate part of Ft. Lauderdale except devoid of any trees and the houses aren't as nice. SW Cape Coral has all of these random Boca Raton looking homes that seem to pop up out of nothing. All and all, it's OK but I think it has zero substance.

Naples is a lot of hype, a "fake" town. Terrible school system, police force is corrupt. Rediculous traffic, overpriced... Rich people run it. I remember a city selectman on TV once saying. "We in Naples are tired of these people moving into our city driving Ford Escorts, Chevettes, and Chevy's, it makes the city look horrendous". NOW THERE IS A "POSITIVE" COMMENT FROM A JERK IN THAT PLACE. Pissed a lot of people off. Shows his intelligence, since Chevettes have not been made since the 80's... Idiot. I never liked it there when I lived there, and was very happy to leave it. I will take Cape Coral over that place.

NOT that Cape Coral is perfect, there are issues here too, but the city does not have to put on a high and mighty act.

No claims to being an intellectual on my part, but these thoughts come to mind....
The "ugly" canals altered the natural swamp that was here, without the canals, we could have no disturbing un natural grid of streets, with or without ugly landscaping. Without Cape Coral, Ft Myers would be a rather bug infested, nearly uninhabitable(well, O.K., it is nearly uninhabitable, nonetheless) town. Perhaps Cape Coral is just an interesting, inanimate example of the Hegelian Dialectic? (look that one up in your Wiki)

I cant honestly say I see any overt examples of racism in the Cape, but that is usually one of those things that is in the eye of the beholder. Some folks are more sensitive to certain things.

Good, or bad, let's be thankful we have something to rely on for some sort of an economy here. But likely correct about a further dip in the value of real property here.

I advise those who post comments or make statements to please provide facts to back up opinions. Statements like "Police are corrupt" without providing the facts does no one any good.

Facts to back up opinions? Interesting.

Guess we need a fact than that the houses are ugly from the OP & that there are low class European tourists?

OP, please provide substantial proof that the houses are ugly & that the European tourist are low class.

CC isn't a mecca of cultural activity. Can't see why people insist on comparing to places like DC or NYC, but hey, whatever. It's CC. What you see is what you get in SWFL.
