The City of North Port, FL, - Discover North Port Neighborhoods
Before we have a look at the North Port Neighborhoods, let us have a look at the overall picture. On your search for a perfect place to live, you will sooner or later stumble upon the name "North Port."
North Port is Big
You can hardly overlook this city because land area wise it is the fourth largest city in the State of Florida! So, North Port is huge, but most of the land is still not in use.
North Port's location is in a triangle between Tampa, Sarasota and Fort Myers. If you want to be close to Sarasota’s rich cultural arts scene and world-class Gulf Beaches, in North Port you are only a 30 - 40-minute drive away.
You don’t want to drive that “far”? Well, North Port also has a lot to offer, although, you can not compare it with Sarasota. That would be very unfair.
So, what can you actually do in North Port?
Those springs are not really the "Fountain of Youth", which the Spanish Conquistadors were trying to find, but they come pretty close.
The springs are located right at the western boundary of the city, and they are hot. Those hot springs may not be too attractive during the hot summer months, but when the cooler winter months come the Warm Mineral Springs are an appreciated option to warm up the tired old bones again.
The North Port Symphony is there for those who like classical music; the North Port Concert Band offers a wider variety of music, too. From Bernstein to Broadway to Christmas Music - the choice is yours. The North Port Chorale & Soundsations may be another place of interest.
But it is not a big deal to drive to Sarasota if you are seeking world class entertainment.Take I-75, put the pedal to the metal and 40 minutes later you will arrive in Downtown Sarasota. Voila! Just add a little extra time for the cop to write that speeding - ticket. But they are usually fast and efficient, and you will still be at the concert hall on time.
Boating, swimming, and fishing are the main activities in North Port. But you should stop by at the Charlotte Harbor & Gulf Islands Visitors Bureau. They will give you fresh ideas about what you can do in North Port. Or try the North Port Art Center. That would be a good start as well.
The Charlotte Sports Park is home to the Tampa Bay Rays spring training. But besides the Charlotte Sports Park, there is a wide selection of environmental parks, dog parks, boat ramps, trails, and playgrounds.
