Fall. Florida. Fun.
Fall in Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach, Florida means kids are back in school and beaches are less crowded. But, most of all, it means fun. From beaches to boating, hiking to harbor tours, fishing to nature discovery; to sun, shelling and fossilized shark teeth, the area offers visitors more of what they come to Florida for: relaxation and discovery in an outdoor vacationland. Take a kayak tour deep into a wildlife preserve. Or bask in the peace and solitude of one of our remote island beaches. And the fun doesn't stop when you come inside. Dine on fresh seafood at area restaurants, discover unique shopping opportunities, or unwind in a relaxing spa. This is the Florida you've been looking for-- that's getting harder to find. Fall, Florida and fun. You couldn't wish for anything else.
With less crowds and shorter lines, now is a great time for a couple's getaway. From romantic and intimate to exhilarating spectacles, see more of our best side with events like:
