This place has everything! Great boating, wonderful bike trails, friendly people and a superb arts community. Visual Arts Center, Charlotte Chorale and the fantastic Charlotte Symphony Orchestra! A wonderful array of places to go, people to see, public celebrations topped off by numerous great restaurants. What more could you ask!

There is pride shown in the town of Punta Gorda, Florida. Streets are well lit and landscaped. Annual flower festivals are wonderful. Lots of trees and flowers in bloom every month of the year. Grass is green and no snow! Enjoy the many birds in the town from free flying parrots to osprey, eagles, hawks and burrowing owls...plus sea and water birds. Take boating adventures in our Charlotte Harbor with sailing and fishing. Tarpon and Redfish tournaments. Also fresh water bass and talipia fishing. Enjoy your kayak, too. Many activities going on all year...every Thursday Guitar Army plays music in one of our many parks. A quiet town...and great place to live and enjoy the sunshine.

Punta Gorda is situated in a wonderful spot here in FL. The town itself has so much to offer and is beautiful, with many miles of bike trails to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. (If you do not have a bike we have a free bike loaner program at your finger tips). If you want to just kick back or if you are one who likes to be involved and active we have both to offer. Looking for a place where you can have it all, we are not far from Sarasota, Tampa, Ft Myers and Naples plus only a 3 hour drive to Miami and all that the east coast offers. Disney World, again 3 hours so how sweet and beautiful is the town of Punta Gorda! Come see!
