Cape Coral is a large municipality located in Lee County, Florida, United States.

Cape Coral Geography and Climate 
Canals 
Cape Coral Florida has over 400 miles of canals, more than any other city in the world. Most of the canals are navigable and some have access to the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral's canal system is so extensive that local ecology and tides have been affected.
Climate The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration classifies Cape Coral as a subtropical climate. The area averages 355 days of sunshine each year but experiences precipitation on 145 days per year. While the summers are very warm, humid and rainy, the winters in Cape Coral are dry with moderate temperatures. Cape Coral receives about 54 inches of rain each year, the majority of which falls from May to September. During the summer months, afternoon rains are heavy yet brief. The city is affected by the annual hurricane season, which begins officially on June 1 and continues through November.

Cape Coral Economy
The economy in Cape Coral is based on local government services, health care, retail and real estate/construction. The City's Economic Development Office promotes and incentivizes business relocation to Cape Coral. In 2009 the City's top five employers were the Lee County School District, Cape Coral City Hall, Publix Supermarkets, Cape Coral Hospital and Walmart.
Real Estate Like many communities in Florida, Cape Coral experienced a real estate boom during the 2000s and was hit hard by the following real estate bust beginning in 2006. As of April 23, 2009 the area is listed number 3 out of 25 for the highest Foreclosure Cities in the US according to RealtyTrac. Foreclosures in this market quickly adjusted property values back down to a level that the city had not seen in many years. In late 2009, a new home could be purchased for under $80,000.

Cape Coral Education
Cape Coral has continuously expanding public and private school systems with high performance standards. Cape Coral is part of the Lee County School District, which is operated by the Lee County Board of Education. As of 2009, the Board of Education operated 8 elementary, 6 middle and 4 high schools in the Cape.

There are four public high schools in Cape Coral: Cape Coral High School, built in the late 1970s, Mariner High School, which opened in 1987, and Ida S. Baker High School, founded in 2004 and named after one of the early principals of Cape Coral High School, with the building opening in 2005. The newest high school, Island Coast High School, opened its doors for the 2008-2009 school year.

In addition, the City of Cape Coral has created a municipal charter school system consisting of two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. The charter schools use the Core Knowledge and Cambridge Curricula. Since the system is public, there is no tuition. The municipal charter schools are available exclusively to children who live in Cape Coral.

The main campus of Edison State College is located immediately south of Cape Coral in Fort Myers. Edison State offers associate and bachelor’s degrees, plus technical training in fields such as Allied Health Programs, Computer Networking & Programming, Business Administration, Paralegal, Criminal Justice and Fire Science. 2009 enrollment was more than 16,000 students on four campuses.

One of Florida’s youngest state universities, Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU), opened in 1997 in nearby Fort Myers and now serves more than 11,000 students. FGCU has established a Cape Coral satellite facility, which provides Cape students with a growing offering of core courses. The university offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, including an Executive Master’s program, a College of Business and Engineering and Biotechnology programs.

Other colleges and universities serving the area are Hodges University, Southwest Florida College and Rassmussen College.

Cape Coral is also home to High Tech North, a postsecondary educational institution operated by the Lee County public school system. It provides training in medical, computer and food-science fields. Employer-specific training, both on and off-site, is available through Business and Industry Services of Lee County which maintains an office in Cape Coral.
