There’s nothing like escaping to Cape Coral for a holiday weekend! Imagine waking up in the morning to step out onto your private dock to take your boat for a sunrise cruise or taking a sunset kayak trip out to a local tiki bar—these are the things that can make up a Cape Coral Memorial Day weekend vacation! From big family trips to long romantic weekends away, Cape Coral has something for everyone, offering lots of outdoor recreation, local wildlife parks, delicious dining, and plenty of activities to keep you entertained. Memorial Day is especially noteworthy as it welcomes the summer season to Cape Coral and is great beach weather if you can make it out to Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach—about a 40-minute drive, or even less if you go by boat! With so much to do, Cape Coral is a premier Memorial Day destination!

Classic Cape Coral Memorial Day Activities

Hop on your boat and head to the Gulf in just minutes, kayak through your neighborhood, and fish right from your backyard—these are all activities that are classic pastimes in Cape Coral, as the water is never more than a few minutes away from most points in the city. Explore the city from the waterways and find the best Memorial Day celebrations in town. Get in some Memorial Day shopping at the stores off Cape Coral Parkway downtown or stop by the Marina Village to check out the Turquoise Boutique and The Looke Champagne Boutique—and be sure to stop by the Gulf Coast Fudge Company for a tasty treat after!

Take a Day Trip to Sanibel Island

Not even an hour away by car is Sanibel Island, home to several tropical Gulf Coast beaches with sugar-white sand and turquoise-blue water. The island also offers some of the best “shelling” or shell-hunting in the country, as the Gulf current carries a trove of treasures to the shore each morning. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at Lighthouse Beach Park or rent one of our properties with a private dock so you can take your own boat. Accessing the island by watercraft is even faster, giving you the ability to easily take a half-day trip out to the beach!

Indulge in Fantastic Memorial Day Dining

The dining in Cape Coral is always top-notch, but on Memorial Day weekend you’ll find bars and restaurants that have a vibrant atmosphere, whether it’s a pub with live music or a restaurant with sweeping views of the Caloosahatchee River. Stop by the classic The Boathouse for waterfront dining and amazing sunsets, then continue to the Tiki Hut at Dolphin Key Resort for tropical cocktails and live music. Try Ford’s Garage for burgers in an eclectic automobile-themed restaurant, or the Lobster Lady Seafood Market for fresh dishes from the Gulf. These are just a few of the dining and drinking options you’ll have for Memorial Day in Cape Coral!

Visit the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve

On the east side of the city, you can find the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve, a terrific place for a little escape into nature, right in town! The preserve offers hiking trails through the wetlands, and you can try to spot a variety of birds and wildlife. Kayakers will love that the park offers seasonal rentals and paddling trails, giving you the opportunity to observe the mangrove forests from enchanting waterways in a unique experience. Other nearby natural areas include Charlotte Harbor State Park and the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve.

Adventure Around Cape Coral

Cape Coral has much to offer in the way of family-friendly fun and local attractions. Take a night to play a round of mini-golf at Gator Mike’s Family Fun Park or get away for a few to play the real thing at the Cape Royal Golf Club. At Rotary Park you can walk the short nature trail and stop by the Tom Allen Memorial Butterfly House to see if you can spot a few summer butterflies bustling around the flowers. There are several local parks in town perfect for a Memorial Day picnic, and you might even be able to boat or kayak to some of them depending on the location of your vacation rental! Four Freedoms Park and Jaycee Park are well-known spots in town, with picnic areas and BBQ grills for rent.

With so many family-friendly activities, fantastic local dining, water recreation, and options for Easter services, you’ll find that Cape Coral has it all for a stress-free Easter escape!

Attend a Local Easter Service

When you go on an Easter vacation, you can still attend a Sunday service if that is part of your usual Easter celebrations. Visitors will find a wide array of churches offering Easter Services—and there are many non-denominational churches in town if you’re just looking for that community worship atmosphere. There’s everything from Lutheran to Baptist, and you can find many more right in town. Visiting Cape Coral for Easter is like having a true home-away-from-home.

Take a Day Trip to Sanibel Island

One of the number one bonuses to visiting Cape Coral is that beyond all the wonderful local water recreation, you’re only a quick 40-minute drive from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Shell-hunting, or “shelling” is practically a sport here, and the currents offer up untold treasures up on the beaches every morning. It’s an easy day trip from Cape Coral, and if you rent a boat and a vacation home with Gulf access, you can get there even quicker and skip all the traffic! Popular Sanibel Island beaches include Bowman’s Beach, popular with shellers, and Lighthouse Beach Park, which has a fishing pier and historic lighthouse.

Explore Over 400 Miles of Canals

Water recreation goes hand in hand with a Cape Coral vacation. Try your hand at fishing along the canals—many of our vacation rentals offer private docks, meaning you don’t ever have to leave your property for some prime fishing! If you rent a home where you can bring your own boat and has gulf access, you can adventure the river and gulf any time, and go fishing in a wide variety of spots. Other options for water recreation include kayaking and paddleboarding. Cape Coral is home to many parks and lakes, giving you much to discover when you visit for Easter. Your vacation home rental can give you even more opportunities for enjoying Cape Coral’s outdoor environment, from spacious outdoor areas and private pools covered by lanais. When searching for Easter vacation rentals, be sure to look for these fantastic amenities!

Go Wildlife Watching

Spend your Easter morning driving out to Pine Island to watch the sunrise over the sound or wake up to walk the nature trail at Rotary Park. Whatever sounds good to you, Cape Coral has a way to experience nature and get in a little wildlife watching. In town you can visit the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve, which offers kayak rentals and river trails through preserved areas—you can spot everything from snakes to raccoons to migratory birds! In northwest Cape Coral you’ll find the Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park, offering bicycling trails, boating areas, fishing, and hiking trails. There’s also parking, restrooms, and picnic areas! Bring a lunch, then stop by the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center to learn more about the local ecosystem. If you love the outdoors, Cape Coral is your dream Easter destination!

With an excellent location only a 20 or so mile drive from famous Gulf Coast beaches, tons of canal front property, family-friendly activities, and lots of exciting water recreation, it’s a great place to getaway on a little spring road trip.

If you’ve been thinking about a spring road trip to Cape Coral, we’ll tell you why that’s an amazing idea!

Memorable Destinations on Your Way to Cape Coral

When you embark on a road trip to Cape Coral, you can experience the delight of other popular Florida destinations, and even plan extra stops along the way. If the east coast is on your path, you can visit iconic spots like the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, or even Miami if you want to make a giant loop up to Cape Coral. Baseball fans can stop in varying Florida cities to catch a Spring Training game, while those who enjoy a bit of an artsy vibe and nightlife can visit St. Petersburg on the way. Families can stop in Orlando to visit Disney World or Universal Studios, and if you’ve ever wanted to see other sights in central Florida, spring is a comfortable and beautiful season to do it in. Those heading from further away can add in spots like New Orleans, Atlanta, or Charleston!

Bring Your Own Boat

Another highlight of road-tripping to Cape Coral is the ability to bring your own boat or the ability to rent one when you get there. Quite a few vacation homes come with their own electric docks and will invite you to bring your personal watercraft or rental. There’s nothing like renting a home with direct Gulf access, getting out to the Caloosahatchee River and to the ocean beyond. It allows for tons of extra activities, and whether it’s a relaxing getaway or a family vacation, having the benefit of bringing your own boat is unmatched in convenience. Depending on where your rental is located, you can boat to restaurants such as The Boathouse. When you have your own vehicle, the options are endless, and you can fully enjoy the best of Cape Coral.

Immerse Yourself in the Cape Coral Life

From morning kayaking trips down the canal, to using the well-known Chiquita Lock to get out to the river and gulf, there’s tons of ways to enjoy the local life and experience activities you can only experience in Cape Coral. Sign up for a local tour of mangroves that are open to the public, such as with Gulf Coast Kayak, or just enjoy visiting local beaches such as the Yacht Club Public Beach on the Caloosahatchee River. Whether it’s freshwater fishing, canal-side dining, or just laying out by the pool under a gorgeous lanai, a road trip to Cape Coral allows you to indulge in all the best things about the city!

Discover Local Landmarks and Nature Preserves

With your own vehicle in Cape Coral, a world of opportunity opens up, from visiting the local Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve, to taking a day trip out to Sanibel Island to see the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which includes an educational center and guided tours. Take an afternoon to make the quick drive to Rotary Park, where you can visit the Tom Allen Memorial Butterfly House, or make the longer drive to The Butterfly Estates in Fort Myers. Those who like a local brew or spirit will love a visit to the Wicked Dolphin Distillery or Big Storm Brewery, while you’ll find plenty of family-friendly fun in Fort Myers and the surrounding beach towns.

How to Choose Wisely When Deciding on Smart Home Technology

Are you thinking it’s time to invest in technology for your home, but you’re not sure about the ramifications? One of the biggest concerns for many homeowners is the impact their decisions could make when it’s time to sell. Here’s the relevant information you need so you can factor smart home technology into your market-smart decisions.

Integration and communication

There is a wide range of smart home devices out there for homeowners to consider. As such, there are several things you should investigate when making your choices, especially if you plan to integrate your equipment into one system. In that case, your final choices need to be compatible so devices can “talk” to each other. You might want to link them all to a single hub or to a voice-operated assistant like Siri or Alexa. Another suggestion is to use IFTTT (If This, Then That). In this case, you set circumstances through an app or website for your devices to essentially domino each other, which is called a “recipe.” For example, you might set up your thermostat to turn off your lights when you aren’t home.

Your best bet for installation of your gadgets is to hire the work so you know it’s done correctly.  For a professional electrician to install electrical outlets, fixtures, or switches in Cape Coral, Florida, you can expect to pay between $161 – $737.

Here are some popular smart home devices to consider:




Fun and Functional

How do you decide what smart home devices are best for your home and lifestyle? One of the biggest driving forces for many people is the convenience factor. For instance, if you end up working later than expected or run extra errands on your way home, you can use your phone to tell your lights to turn on so you don’t come home to a dark house. Energy efficiency is another big player. Studies cited by Electronic House indicate as much as a 25 percent energy savings from installing smart devices and systems, so it’s a worthwhile consideration.

Listing Your Smart Home

When it comes time to sell your house, plan to create a list of the items which are in place, and contact tech support regarding the transition. Automation may or may not help sell your home, but either way, you will want to ensure both your and the buyer’s security when the sale is complete. As far as which options are most likely to help your home sell, thinking in terms of popularity, ease of use, and convenience.

Adding automation to your home can feel complicated, but with a little research, you can make wise decisions. Ensure you choose gadgetry you’ll enjoy using, and chances are other people will appreciate those items as well. Your selections could pay off in the long run!
