The Cultural Park Theatre: From musicals to concerts, a gift shop and an art gallery…you’ll find a variety of entertainment here. It’s a fantastic way to support your local community, too!

Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery: This locally owned, family-operated distillery offers tours and tastings. Obviously, this option isn’t kid-friendly though.

Southwest Florida Military Museum and Library: Cape Coral is known as the “Purple Heart” city, which means we love our veterans. This is a great way to spend time while learning about our American history.

Fellowship Park: This is a playground built by a local church, Cape Christian Fellowship, to give back to the community. You’ll find a splash pad, a coffee shop, and a playground to name a few. It’s a wonderful place for a family picnic!

Tropical Breeze Fun Park: Who doesn’t enjoy a round of mini-golf? If that’s not your jam, maybe take out some hidden frustration in a laser tag tournament! Either way, you’re going to have a blast. It’s the perfect way to end a great day.

These are just a few wonderful places nestled within the Cape Coral community. All you have to do is look past the biggest ads to find more like them.
