There is always something to do, so many artists, musicians, festivals, fairs, parties andfun things to do. People are the friendliest in this town that I have ever met. Beautiful waterfront views and so many parks about the place. Dining or dancing, everything is here in pretty Punta Gorda. Great people for all over the world. Friendly folks from all over move here and mingle.

Punta Gorda was a nice quiet town prior to the 2004 hurricane. A concentrated effort was made to build a vision for the city as it recovered by a volunteer citizen group that then worked with the city government to to make the vision reality. Citizens working with a government focused on achievement rather than inaction have achieved the dream. Not only is the city a friendly beautiful place to live it is one of the best run.
