Florida Tourism Industry
in Cape Coral
Cape Coral’s Tourism Cluster is growing quicker than comparison regions. While overall employment and specialization are still low, tourism business opportunities have high potential. Target segments that differentiate the city are numerous, such as Water Transport, Fine Dining, and Spectator Sports.
The Cape Coral, Florida Tourism Industry is growing, as it is one of the boating capitals of the world and a gateway to the Gulf of Mexico – an ecological paradise and unparalleled fishing ground. Cape Coral is home to the exciting SunSplash Water Park, has access to numerous golf courses, and a climate to allow outdoor activities year round.
Ecological tours into Four Mile Cove Ecological Park in the Cape, to the neighboring Everglades or excursions to the theme parks of Orlando provide for a wide variety of activities. Most tourists stay at luxurious vacation homes. This leaves untapped potential and tourism business opportunities for the hotel and resort industry.
The Cape Coral region has a few clear competitive advantages that support this cluster; Florida is an international tourist brand which supports the industry’s marketing throughout the state. Cape Coral's spectacular natural environment and tropical climate position the city as the ideal location for further development of the Florida tourism industry. Our ready and educated multi-lingual workforce is supported by Hospitality Management degrees from Florida Gulf Cost University. Access to the region is through the state-of-the-art Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW).
