The beach can’t get much better…unless there’s good food, cold drinks, and live entertainment just steps away, as is the case with Englewood Beach. Make any beach day even more enjoyable with a short walk to any of the nearby lunch, dinner or happy hour spots for a tasty bite and a refreshing drink:
