You’re likely here because you’ve been daydreaming about an escape to Cape Coral—and what better time than the Easter holidays? With breezy and warm spring temperatures and miles of shimmering canals to explore, it’s a water lover’s dream vacation destination, one where you can even boat to a few of your favorite restaurants. Take the stress out of this Easter, and instead take off to Cape Coral! Cape Coral offers something for all types of vacationers, and you’re bound to make memories that you’ll cherish for years to come. 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!
Dine Out at Local Restaurants
When you visit Cape Coral for Easter vacation, a big highlight will be the chance to dine out at all the delicious restaurants our city has. From upscale spots like Rum Runners to the casual beachy atmosphere at The Boathouse, Cape Coral has something for all styles of diners, and quite a few places that offer Easter Brunch! Whether you’re looking for something trendy like Point 57 Kitchen and Cocktails, or just searching for an Easter treat from LadyCakes Bakery, Cape Coral is likely to have it. From sports bars to sushi, you’ll find what you’re looking for when you choose to dine out in the Waterfront Wonderland!
