Punta Gorda Lifestyle
Some people say that Punta Gorda is a big retirement community with roughly 17,000 retirees. Well, if you are a teenager it may pretty much feel like a 55+ community, but is that the reality?
Let's have a closer look at the age of the residents to find out if that feeling is real or not. 8,2% of the residents are under 18, 2.1% are between 18 and 24 (wow, that is bad - at least for those guys), 9.9% are between 25 and 45, 33.4% are between 45 and 64, and a whopping 46.4% of the residents are over 65.
So, it seems that when you are 50+ and married, this is an excellent spot to live, but from the perspective of a teenager, well, Punta Gorda may look a little ....sad? Remember when you were 18 and a 30-year-old guy looked like a Methuselah to you?
Yes, it is true. Teenagers are not too happy in Punta Gorda: Port Charlotte. Englewood or Sarasota would be a better place with more opportunities for younger folks, but life is not always fair.
Although there is a High School in Punta Gorda, overall activities for younger people is still pretty limited.
