The small, quaint Town's buildings have beautiful historic murals painted on them. There are many waterfront restaurants. There is entertainment every weekend....at Lashley Park or in town. Come to Punta Gorda and enjoy!

Punta Gorda is the quintessential small town travelers are looking for these days! It's downtown appeal starts with the beautiful waterfront views and continues with the perfect mix of dining and entertainment. Be sure to join in on the gallery walk where you will find the best artisan wares of any place you visit. If seafood is a favorite you have to visit Laishley's Crabhouse not only for the food or views but the decor is one of a kind. And one of the most amazing treasure is Muscle Car City Museum where you can see over 200 prestine muscle cars, touring, & movie cars spanning 80 plus years. It has a diner, speed shop, car corral, and one of the largest gift & memorabilia shops in the nation. With over 10 years of extensive business travel, I place Punta Gorda on top of my list for places to visit that has it all!
