Our Best Side is by Your Side

In Charlotte County, we’re usually telling the world that Our Best Side is Outside, and inviting Outsiders to enjoy our beautiful beaches, extraordinary outside activities, and gorgeous natural settings. But, while we join other Florida destinations in doing what’s best for our locals and visitors during these uncertain times, we’re instead saying Our Best Side is by Your Side. Take a moment to explore the information below, get inspired, and drift away to your dream vacation to Charlotte County. We’ll be here when this is over, for our welcomed visitors and our beloved locals.

Take-Out. Order in. Dine out. It all helps out.

During this trying time, our local restaurants need your support now more than ever. Even with slow re-opening, restaurants are still struggling financially. Capacity is limited at restaurants, so delivery, carryout, and curbside pickup services available at many area restaurants are great options to help them make up the difference, it’s easy to still enjoy your favorite meals, or try something new, while maintaining social distancing and staying safe. Use our app (see below) to quickly find restaurants near you that are open for take-out/delivery. And don't forget to tip!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then 30 pictures per second—the streaming frame rate of the Englewood Beach cam live stream—must be worth a whole lot more!
