What is there to do there? I looked at CC on Google Earth and it looks like it's just all houses and not alot of places to go.

Mostly homes and shopping centers. Why do you think we call it Cape Coma?

Default not much

WE used to live in Cape Coral, and they are trying so hard to become like FT. Myers! They have affordable housing, but you get what you pay for and that means quite a few blacks and a ton of illegal Mexicans! They have pretty much overrun Cape Coral(the Mexicans) There is nothing for children or teens to do at all!! The downtown is trying to get hip, but that will take forever. We left Cape Coral 2 years ago and the only thing we miss are our families!

Cape Coral is a bedroom for Fort Myers Jobs. If you want a job there Real estate is about the only market. But you can try saying this ! (do you want that for here or to go ) I don't think you can live off the pay but you will get a real cool hat !.

I don't think the mass-hole (Boston) Real Estate mayor will do a stat on that ! After all we have to keep the paradise illusion alive right?

Didn't know it was an illusion.

Whether or not it's an illusion depends on how you spend your days. If you are retired, want to live on a canal, go boating every day, catch an early-bird dinner special, then watch the sunset with a pitcher or margaritas --- all without straining the budget --- it' paradise. If you need to work, want to have the opportunity for some upward mobility, or have children, then perhaps "paradise" isn't such a good description.

That being said, I considered moving back to Fort Myers (left in 2002 to take care of aging family members) and even though I'm retired, love boating (used to live on a canal in Fort Myers), and can drink margaritas with the best of them (IMHO), we decided against it due to the fact that we now have a baby, plus the housing is currently WAY overpriced (again, IMHO).

I would advise anyone seriously considering Cape Coral to at least consider "upgrading" to Fort Myers. With all the new regional infrastucture having been built in Fort Myers over the last five years (restauants, good shopping, etc.) it doesn't look like Cape Coral is going to be able to catch up.
