Cape Coral is obviously a famous destination for beach vacations, and it’s little surprise as to why. Those gorgeous temperatures make sure you can always come through and live in comfort, but what about all of the other hidden gems in the area? There’s nothing wrong with seeing the beaches, of course, but there are plenty of other great stops that’ll help make that vacation special and keep you coming back. Who knows, maybe you’ve stayed in the area before and you’re looking for something new to reignite the magic? Whatever the case, here are a few things to do in Cape Coral you might consider doing this time around.
Sample Some Unique Cape Coral Rum
Cape Coral is home to Wicked Dolphin Distillery, a fairly new producer that opened just back in 2012. They source many of their ingredients locally, from the famous sugarcane just miles away to the other touches that add the unique flavors to this local treasure. Handcrafted small batches lead to a high-quality product, and while you can expect to see all of the rum mainstays, the masterminds behind the product also provide some premium, unique offerings you won’t want to miss.
You can stop by the distillery to do some shopping, and if you’re enough of a fan after having a taste, they also offer tours of the facility, where you’ll learn how it’s all made while getting a few samples along the way.
See the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve
While the city of Cape Coral was being developed, and the rapid expansion seemed inevitable, the state took precautions to make sure areas such as this remained undisturbed. This is a gorgeous wetland with a boardwalk that’s friendly to all ages, and is open every day from 8 AM to sundown, making it the perfect afternoon activity to see the local wildlife. They offer guides to show you what you can expect to see, and if you’re a birdwatcher this is the spot for you.
Mini Golf in Cape Coral and Nearby Fort Myers
Florida has a ton of mini golf courses that make for the perfect family-friendly activity. Between Cape Coral and Fort Myers alone, you have at least five different courses to choose from, meaning you could split up your visits into multiple days, or make the whole day into your own mini-golf tour. If you’re traveling without the kids, many of these courses have alcohol for sale on-site that you’re welcome to bring along the course with you.
