Things To Do
You'll find it easy to discover your ideal vacation in Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach, whether you're a nature lover or art connoisseur. We've got activities and attractions to delight everyone from couples and groups of friends to families of all sizes.
For the ecologically-minded, there are more than 70 parks and recreational areas as well as several environmental centers, wildlife preserves, and wildlife sanctuaries. Seafarers will want to set sail on a sunset or nature cruise, enjoy world-class fishing, paddle a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard through some of the nearly 200 miles of Blueway Trails, or try a boat rental and explore on their own.
Athletes and families will enjoy riding a bicycle path at Fred C. Babcock/Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area or hiking through Cedar Point Environmental Park, then cooling off at a free splashpad or with a frozen treat. Outdoor lovers will relish spending a day basking in the sun and gathering fossilized shark teeth and seashells on one of the pristine beaches on Manasota Key. Golfers and sports fans will love teeing up at a local golf course or catching a Tampa Bay Rays Spring Training baseball game.
Those looking for art and culture will appreciate a symphony, theater, comedy, or opera performance, perusing a museum, savoring upscale cuisine, gallery hopping through art-rich communities, shopping vibrant retail spaces, and a good pampering at a spa or salon.
With so many activities and adventures, everyone will have a great time!
