Cape Coral has a plan to spruce up the city in a major way. While this plan doesn’t include new sites and attractions, it is a five-year project aimed at beautifying empty medians.
As visionaries look ahead to the future of Cape Coral, one can’t help but look to the past and the inspirational tourist attraction that helped shaped the area. At one time a bustling site, the Cape Coral Gardens are virtually obsolete these days, yet the memory, for some, can never be forgotten.
Once the destination of hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, the Cape Coral Gardens also welcomed such big names as Bob Hope, and served as a movie and commercial backdrop with grand plans for the future. While you won’t find any trace of the gardens today, the memory for some in Cape Coral still exists.
Tarpon Point in Cape Coral scored a major coup in landing the Westin brand for the development’s existing Resort at Marina Village waterfront hotel. The prestige associated with the signature Westin brand is a big win for Cape Coral. The city of Cape Coral, with over 150,000 residents, has truly needed a luxury branded hotel for many years.
