Punta Gorda, Florida

Punta Gorda, which means “fat point”, is a city eminently worth visiting if you want to sample a blend of culture, simple waterfront pleasures and small town ambience. Founded in 1885 on the banks of Charlotte Harbor and the end of the Peace River, it is the oldest, and only, incorporated city in Charlotte County.

The downtown offers a very unique display of its historical past with painted murals on many of the buildings, as well as a magnificent exhibit of 30 pieces of sculpture to entice your interest. As you stroll along the Peace River waterfront, there are many examples of classic Southwest Florida architecture clustered along its brick-paved streets. Close by, the 20-acre Gilchrist Park, offer plenty to do with a playground, picnic tables, charcoal grills, a fishing pier, tennis and basketball courts, and gazebos for when relaxation is a must. Spending the day at Fishermen’s Village, a waterfront open-air arcade of boutiques and restaurants, is a favorite of the locals and visitors alike. Of course, you can choose between a plethora of boating and canoeing excursions, nature walks, camping, and more to fill the day with excitement.

Whether you stop by for the day, a weekend or you decide to plant your roots here, you will love Punta Gorda’s charm. It’s a favorite place to visit for many and after a while, they tend to not want to leave.
