What do you picture when you think of retirement? Is it sunshine? Palm Trees? Boating? Drinks by the pool?
If that's the case, you're probably right in considering Cape Coral.
We have the water, weather, sunshine, views, restaurants, you name it.

Now that you know what city to aim for, there are also some factors to consider. I recently read an article by "Keeping Current Matters." I loved what it had to say.
