About Punta Gorda

One of the "Best Healthy Places to Retire"

The gazebo in Gilchrist Park in downtown Punta Gorda overlooks the serene waters of Charlotte Harbor.

Meaning "broad point" in Spanish, Punta Gorda is a historic and charming town that sits on the edge of Charlotte Harbor and the Peace River. Punta Gorda offers miles of waterfront and striking views, and Punta Gorda's historic district gives you a taste of 'old Florida' with brick lanes, traditional Florida style homes with wide verandas, and beautiful city parks.


Chic dining and shopping establishments populate the historic downtown area, while the residential areas of Punta Gorda Isles, Burnt Store Isles and Burnt Store Marina offer an upscale Florida lifestyle with quick sailboat access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico.

Fisherman's Village is a favorite visitor destination with unique shops, harbor cruises and waterside dining.

As one of the U.S News & World Report's "Best Healthy Places to Retire" in 2008, Punta Gorda offers classic living in a small town environment.
