a great place to get "re-born" if you were not lucky enough to "be born" here. I'm one of the "lucky ones".

The Punta Gorda waterfront is one of the most beautiful and impressive anywhere. The people are pretty great too.

This small city has a true heart of gold. As a phoenix resurrected from the ashes of a devastating hurricane in 2004, Punta Gorda has come back loud and proud, with a community spirit I have never experienced anywhere else in the country, Its streets are filled with friendly locals, world-class festivals that attract people from far and wide, over 50+ independently owned and operated restaurants representing every type of culinary experience, an arts sector that is vibrant and alluring, a beautiful historic district and a waterfront that offers every type of vacation experience - world class fishing, sailing, waterfront dining, retail - the list goes on. Punta Gorda - a small city with a BIG heart!
