Port Charlotte Lifestyle
Port Charlotte is located halfway between Sarasota and Fort Myer. Because of the proximity to Charlotte Harbor which is a huge body of water connected to the Gulf of Mexico, Port Charlotte is perfectly positioned to please everybody who likes activities on or in the water.
More than 160 miles of natural waterways and manmade canals provide access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, and there are also many waterfront properties available.
Miles and miles of shoreline are bordering the harbor and the Peace and Myakka River. However, Port Charlotte has not a single stretch of Beach located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. If sunseekers want to feel that white sand between their toes, they have to drive to Englewood Beach, Gasparilla Beach, or Venice. Those beaches can be reached within a short 30-minute drive.
For residents who get already seasick when watching a pelican floating by, there are more than 20 golf courses spread out all over Port Charlotte and Charlotte County. And sports enthusiasts who want to watch the Tampa Bay Rays performing their spring training need to go to Charlotte's Sports Park.
The Tippecanoe Environmental Park is a 380-acre piece of land with scrub and pine flat woods. For nature lovers who like to hike and bike this is the right spot. Wildlife is also abundant and there is almost a guarantee that you will see some wild animals.
