Explore Punta Gorda from a House or Villa

Near the barrier islands of Perdido Key and Boca Grande, the charming village of Punta Gorda has architecture dating from the days of Spanish colonization. There are many private homes and villas available for rent in the area, many within walking distance of the quaint downtown.

Historic Downtown Punta Gorda

Museums

You can take a Trolley Tour of the downtown area and see the location of all the shops and museums. The Military Heritage Museum has free admission, and the Muscle Car Museum has one of the largest displays of classic automobiles in the country.

Parks

The many waterfront parks are open to the public and they make up a large part of the peninsula. Many of the parks have shelters, playgrounds, restrooms and water fountains. Gilchrist Park covers eleven acres along Charlotte Harbor and includes a basketball court, jogging trail and fishing pier.

Walking Tour

Perched on the shores of Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda is definitely a walkable city. Some of the buildings have murals painted on them by talented local artists. The historic and charming downtown of Punta Gorda is only one mile from Fisherman's Village, another attraction.

Local Attractions

Fisherman's Village

Home to a 98-slip marina, Fisherman's Village also has boutiques, shops and fine dining in an indoor environment. The village is located on the Peace River as it flows into Charlotte Harbor. You can listen to live music there just about any day, including banjo playing and acoustic guitar.

Peace River Wildlife Center

The center is a rehabilitation stop for injured wildlife from the area. Most of them are returned to the wild, but some are residents for life. Located at the edge of Ponce de Leon Park, it's home to eagles, hawks, sandhill cranes and small mammals.

Outdoor Activities

Boat and Jet-Ski Rentals

The marina is one of the favorite stopping places for local boaters. Visitors can rent boats or jet-skis for an hour or for the day. You can charter a yacht or rent a small boat, and guided tours are available as well.

Fishing Cruises

There are three charter fishing companies that offer expeditions to catch sea fish like tarpon, amberjack, grouper and kingfish. Harbor fishing tours are available in addition to the deep sea cruises.

Golf

Seminole Lakes Golf Club is located in Punta Gorda and is open to the public. Altogether, there are nearly two dozen golf courses within an hour's drive of the city.

Recent Punta Gorda Reviews

Clean, Quiet, and Comfortable

5 of 5
This house was just what we were looking for...clean quiet and comfortable. It was well equipped with everything we needed. Our kids loved the fishing poles and new bikes. It was located in a beautiful neighborhood that was quiet and safe. We were most fortunate to sit on the dock our first morning and watch four dolphins feeding in and around our dock! They were so close you could see their eyes and hear them coming up for air. Our two kids watched them for about an hour as they fed on fish in the canal...what an awesome experience! Linda took very good care of us. She met us at the property and gave us a tour along with tips on fishing and places to go around the area. It was really easy to settle in quickly and start relaxing! We would definitely go back here.
