Englewood, Florida, is your ideal destination if you love boating, fishing, and beach activities. This charming, historic fishing village offers an authentic, relaxed atmosphere with a small-town vibe. Many upscale neighborhoods with new construction, like Beachwalk by Manasota Key or Boca Royale Golf and County Club, have been added. There are also more great restaurants with or without live entertainment in Englewood downtown and at the Beach. No need to mention that outdoor enthusiasts get their money’s worth.
Situated northwest of Port Charlotte and south of Venice, the beach town borders Lemon Bay. Retirees used to move to Englewood a former fishing town, because of the year-round pleasant weather, the gorgeous beaches, and the low cost of living. Englewood also offers spectacular waterfront properties for a reasonable price, cozy neighborhoods, great waterfront restaurants with fresh and tasty seafood, and many places that offer live music.
Thirty years later, some of that has changed, and some things haven’t. Long gone are the days when only retirees came to Englewood. Young families, second homeowners from other states, and international homeowners now make up a high percentage of the residents. The pleasant weather and the beaches are still the same. Like many places in the United States, the cost of living has increased. Not as bad as in other areas and not dramatically, but noticeably. Spectacular waterfront properties do have a different price tag than 20 years ago. But that is what happens when a quiet oasis gets discovered. State Road 776 is the busy four-lane artery that connects Englewood with Venice, North Port, Port Charlotte, and Punta Gorda. In contrast, Dearborn Street, the main and historic part of Englewood, also called Olde Englewood Village, presents a vivid street with restaurants, little shops, and nightlife. Dearborn Street is a place to rest, be, and be yourself.
