We know SWFL for beautiful beaches and exciting tourist life. However, did you know that Cape Coral-Fort Myers is considered to be one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States?
According to Forbes, the metropolitan area ranked first in population growth, past and projected, in 2017. It also ranked first in projected job growth. In 2018, the city still made the list but dropped down to ninth place.
While the beaches are a little more crowded and the traffic a little heavier, the influx of residents creates many business and job opportunities for young professionals like me.
