Punta Gorda

Old South charm

Punta Gorda is an enchanting historic waterfront town where royal palms line cobblestone streets. With plenty of wide verandas and street lamps, but no high-rises or traffic lights to interfere with its Old South charm, you'll feel like you wandered back in time. Englewood has four beaches on the charming barrier island of Manasota Key. The lesser known Englewood Beach remains uncrowded, affordable and ideal for shelling. Florida snowbirds flock here to boat, fish, golf and enjoy nature in a peaceful setting.

Outdoor Focus

Whether you want to stroll the beaches, collect shells or venture offshore to fish, cruise or swim, you'll be surrounded by sun, surf and sand. No matter how you filled the daylight hours, gorgeous sunsets round off the day and lead into romantic, starlit nights.

I always love places with water as the object. It feels so fresh to visit a place like that and I can enjoy even just to sit around there. Veritable San Antonio Property Damage
