We moved to Punta Gorda 2 years ago because of the beauty and Fisherman's Village. Just love it here. The people are very friendly that live in Punta Gorda, Fl.

We looked all over the gulf coast and found Punta Gorda to be the most beautiful. Great people and fantastic boating.

If you want to feel like you are on a permanent vacation, try Punta Gorda! Sitting on the deck of any of the waterfront restaurants, and sipping your favorite beverage just puts you in the "island" mood...even if you are only on your lunch break! We are sailors and just love the huge, protected harbor, sailing with tropical breezes and enjoying the dolphins and sunsets!

We have lived in Punta Gorda since 2008 and couldn't be happier. The neighbors on our street all know each other and we enjoy a great social life. Lots of beautiful golf courses, first-class waterfront restaurants, great community-wide activities, and just a few minutes to the beaches of Gasparilla Island. The natural beauty of the area and the water are stunning. During tarpon season in May and June, I catch tarpon off my sea wall ! As our kids describe it..."it's the whole package". And indeed it is.
