We were just passing through Punta Gorda in 2004 and now we call it home. We were just simply captivated by its beauty, charm and warmth. Susan

We found Punta Gorda to be our Final home in Fla.because our 65 ft cabin Cruiser sits outside our home of 7,000 sq ft and every morning we can look @ what we worked so hard for to enable our children and our grandchildren and friends to ENJOY LIFE on the West Coast of Fla.with us during those "Cold Months" in The North. We built our busines so we could enjoy life in retirement without a care or worry. . We founf heaven with our fellow PGI club members and every day is a new chapter of our lives and friends at the clubs ...Come find Heaven on earth @ PGI in a waterfront home or a condo .You and your family will be glad you made the move . Finally, The SUNSETS....never two alike

Voted by Money Magazine in 2000-2001 (not sure of which year) as Best Place to Retire, we purchased a 2nd home there. Great lifestyle opportunities... Beautiful sunsets on Charlotte Harbor. Bike and walking paths, historic buildings, casual & friendly, good food, fabulous boating & fishing and the town management always has events running- art, music, biking events... Great place to visit or live...it's a best kept secret.
