No matter what you are looking for in a vacation, Punta Gorda has it. Get swept up in our outdoor beauty, in our history and culture. Exciting downtown restaurants surrounded by world-class art and culture. Our harbor is a boater’s heaven, while the beach beckons those interested in more relaxed water activities.

We guarantee you will find everything you need to make a memorable vacation. (OK, we admit our snow skiing is a bit on the weak side!)

Travel+Leisure Magazine in November, 2018 listed Punta Gorda as one of the most affordable winter vacations in the U.S., calling Punta Gorda gorgeous, with “a beautiful downtown, fishermen’s village, harborwalk in Charlotte Harbor, and an average temperature of 74 degrees in January.”

Punta Gorda is something for everyone.

Punta Gorda is one of Florida’s most picturesque, enjoyable and accessible waterfront destinations.

Fishermen’s Village

“This city is small piece of Florida tradition with a mix of modern excitement.  Punta Gorda has something for everyone. From shopping and dining to relaxing on the harbor.  You will never run out of things to do…unless you choose to.”
