My wife and I live in a surrounding town of Punta Gorda and drive to walk and enjoy the ambience of the town. The town is relaxing and beautiful to walk in seeing a great city and nature. We love this town and hope that we can some day move to Punta Gorda when the housing market allows.

Punta Gorda is wonderful in so many ways, one of which is the friendliness od the people. There are many, many activities to participate in on the Peace River, special events, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, best restaurants, plays, musical events and generosity for our non-profit organization. Punta Gorda is the place people dream of when they dream of a special place by the sea!

We have been visiting here for years and now purchased a lot and plan to build soon. Punta Gorda is beautiful and quaint. There is much to enjoy but it is still quiet. We love the tropical weather. Wonderful boating, great golf and very good dining. We are anxious to make this our new home.

The small friendly town is on a magnificent in land sea, Charlotte Harbor for Fishermen, Sailors, boaters and just beautiful to look at. The town consists of miles of channels allowing quick motoring to the Harbor. Moreover, the wonderful views of the water behind you home makes living on the water so enjoyable. Bike trails, walking/walking trails the Pathways of Punta Gorda provide leisurely easy access to all parts of the city.
