Punta Gorda - One of the Best Places to Live in FL

Money Magazine has named Punta Gorda as one of the best places to live in America several years in a row. Why? The city has been transformed since hurricane Charley in 2004. It has a charming and historic waterfront with restaurants and shops. Boating and fishing are also major attractions. The habor leads out into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It has clean air, 129 square miles of sparkling water, sunshine, and a sub-tropical climate. The crime rate is low and it offers great values on waterfront properties.

The city is located on the shores of Charlotte Harbor in sunny Southwest Florida between Sarasota to the north and Ft. Myers to the south. It is a destination for visitors, residences, and businesses alike. Charlotte County has approximately 17,000 people, including young families, singles, and seniors. The city is convenient to airports such as Charlotte County, Southwest Florida International, and Naples Municipal Airport.

Punta Gorda is considered a waterfront paradise. You can find affordable living in single family homes, mobile homes, townhouses, and condos. Or you can purchase moderately priced luxurious waterfront homes and condos in upscale and gated /golf communities. There are also reasonably priced lots to build that dream home. If you would like additional information on this wonderful city or are thinking about moving here, contact me today at tammyhayesre@gmail.com.

Take a look at Pirate Harbor. It is a hidden beauty in Punta gorda. All of the 8 streets are canal lots that will take you direclty into the Gulf of Mexico. It is a great time to buy as financing rates are low and prices are low. Call me Susan Penn, EWM Realtor at 954-557-5993 and I will give you more information. I have a lot for sale on the nicest street in the subdivision. The homes are key west style, the neighbors are extremely friendly, the sun is usually shinning and there is the world's best tarpon fishing. http://www.susanpenn.com , penn.s@ewm.com

Hi Charles. Charlotte County is located on the west coast of Florida between Fort Myers and Sarasota and is the most affordable coastal community in Southwest Florida to buy or build your dream home in a tropical paradise. I believe that Genevieve has got it right that Punt Gorda is the best place to live. I personally prefer Punta Gorda Isles with it's quick access to Charlotte Harbor via a beautiful and well maintained deep water canal system. There is also the Fishermens Village, the Isles Yacht Club, St. Andrews Golf Course, and the wonderful homes and shops in the downtown historic district. This is an excellent time to buy and I hope that you will give me a call when you are ready to make the move! Thanks.

Good Morning Charles,

You can live as laid back a life or as active a lifestyle as you want. We have easy access to beaches, museums, art galleries, performance arts, golf,boating, fishing and most relaxing entertainment.
