The most beautiful city in SW Florida with most working together as a family to keep it that way. And just as important, the safest city as well. The Punta Gorda Police Dept. is second to none in keeping you safe so that you can totally enjoy our little piece of "Paradise"

This is our little bit of Paradise. As they say, "If you are lucky enough to have a house on the water, you're lucky enough." Of course the golfing is great too. Small town life, close to reasonable size cities, good little airport, lots of activities, safe and secure, what else can you say. Come live the good life.

An absolute boaters and sportsmans paradise. Beautiful scenery and atmosphere around town is the best. Plenty of things to do and see , from waterfront shops and restaurants to a busy nightlife. Dont go on a vacation in Florida without stopping by and saying hello to our friendly little town. You will be impressed and fall in love with it here. This is our little slice of paradise and we want to share it with you !

Best boating town. Beautiful water of Peace River and Charlotte Harbor. Charming downtown. Not too crowded. not too remote. Everything you need is close but no annoying traffic jams. It's just a hidden gem!

Punta Gorda has recovered from disaster by slowly adding beauty in every area. My favorite is the walking path around the city and down by the peace river. It is truly lovely.
