Miles of Canals in Cape Coral and Punta Gorda

ph_capecoralflorida.jpgOn our exploration trip scouting out the SouthWest Florida market (2003), we quickly learned that driving around Punta Gorda and Cape Coral without a good map is not a good idea. Because of all the canal systems, there are many dead ends and you can’t really tell where you’ve been or where you are going. And frustratingly, finding a good map is not easy (if you’d like a good map, just let us know and we’ll send ya one). At the same time, if you don’t know where the canals are, they are not easy to spot. Visitors from “up north” who drive the streets are stunned when we take them on a canal cruise, never realizing how many of the homes they pass on the road are waterfront homes with a canal in the backyard.

Click this link to send us a private email and we will email you a cape coral map or snail-mail you a real map (both of which show the different types of Cape Coral canal systems).

This Google map shows a small section of Cape Coral called the Yacht Club neighborhood. The map is good illustration of where the lakes and canals are. And notice the canal widths—some look like large channels and are 250′ wide, while others are smaller (the smallest being 80′ wide). yachtclub_lg.jpg

    My wife and I have been looking at properties in Cape Coral for nearly a year now and even have an agent who sends us listings daily.
    We plan a permanent move to Cape Coral sometime in the second half of 2009. I would love to get some kind of map that details the canal system and lakes in the entire Cape Coral area and showing what canals have gulf access and access into the Caloosahatchee River. If available, I would like a map that also shows the canal and lake names as well.
