Day Trips in SW Florida!
The busy season is here, Cape Coral!
During their summer vacations, people flock to our state to see the beautiful sights and enjoy all there is to do here. Though we get to live here 365, it’s still nice to get out and enjoy what SW Florida has to offer. The awesome news is that you don’t need a week's vacation to enjoy Florida! There are dozens of places you can visit over the weekend or even just for a day. Here are a few of our faves:
Big Cypress National Preserve. The Big Cypress National Preserve has beautiful tropical sites and hiking trails for the nature lover. If you have a little extra time, you can even camp here. (Just 1 hour and 22 minutes from Cape Coral!)
Ave Maria. For the historical lover, go check out Ava Maria! The architecture is gorgeous, and you’ll find lots of fascinating history around the town. (A 1-hour drive from Cape Coral!)
Cayo Costa State Park. The Cayo Costa State Park is a gorgeous island that you can travel to by boat for the beach lover. Just park your car and hop on the ferry! (Just 55 minutes from Cape Coral!)
Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. For the adventure lover, check out the Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. You don’t have to get into the water to enjoy it, but it’s an exciting option. (A 3-hour drive from Cape Coral, and it sets you up right next to Key Largo and near Miami! Perfect for a weekend or overnight trip.)
Don't forget to plan for vehicle maintenance before you head out. Even if you’re only driving out for the day, you should check your vehicle as if you’re headed out for a month. Prepare your emergency kit, top off your fluids, and check your tires. It'll be more relaxing to enjoy the wide open spaces and open-air in your vehicle if you know everything is up to par.
