Port Charlotte has more than 165 miles of waterways providing access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico and many more miles of natural shoreline bordering Charlotte Harbor and the Peace and Myakka Rivers. Charlotte County was recently voted Money Magazine’s "Best place to live in the South."
Port Charlotte Beach State Park has a wide expanse of sand where walking is a favorite pastime for many. Here you can kayak or canoe along the banks of the pristine Peace and Myakka Rivers.
Enjoy the most spectacular angling in Florida, including the infamous Tarpon Fishing at Boca Grande. Dig your toes in the sand of Florida's least crowded beaches, play golf, picnic in one of 48 parks, explore art galleries and museums, visit the quaint shops of Fisherman's Village, or do something else that comes naturally here…like soaking in the warm sunshine, digging your toes in the sand and breathing in the clean air.
