Port Charlotte is a great place to live, but like in any area throughout the country some areas are better than others. If you are interested in a specific area, take a ride through that area during the day as well as in the evening. It will give you an idea of what kinds of activities are going on at different times of the day. Also, don't hesitate to talk with a police officer if you see one around. I am sure they will give you a wealth of information.
