Southwest Florida’s coastal climate is conducive to a variety of outdoor sports and recreational activities year-round. While our friends to the north are battling freezing temperatures and blizzards, Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach is abuzz with activity from hiking and biking the trails and scenic byways to playing a round of golf or two.
For those wishing to challenge the links, there are 15+ quality courses from which to choose, giving the golfer many options to construct a memorable golf vacation. Add in some excitement and satisfy your need for speed each November with Englewood Beach Waterfest, as the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) holds their World Championship boat races.
For hands-on experiences, try one of our off-road adventure parks offering motocross tracks and ATV trails, or watch short track car races. You can even find several mudding events throughout the year. It's easy around here to have your adventure, your way.
