One of our favorite new spots here is the beautiful Tiki bar that's a couple hundred feet North of here on the bay front promenade. $2 cocktails here at happy hour just happens to coincide with the sunset over one of Florida's most beautiful bays. There's usually some music being played, and everybody seems happy to be right where they're at!
For some other great new spots, walk a block East on the promenade to Laishley Park - there's a fine marina where you can buy shrimp right off the boat, and the Crab House where you can get a get an amazing lunch or dinner on the 2nd floor bayside balcony. The hotel next door features an open air bar on the 9th floor (tallest building in town) that is a popular place for a sundowner. Next to the hotel is Dean's Fresh Mexican, which oddly enough, had a pork BBQ sandwich that is the best!
From your condo, It's a on block walk South to Punta Gorda's restaurant row, which offers a wide variety of delicious food and unique atmospheres, shops, and Punta Gorda's historic district. It's also a short walk to one enormous Banyan tree that Mike and I climbed in as a kids and, stretching along the bay front, Gilcrest Park. The park features a wonderful bay front promenade, public tennis courts, small beach, gazebos and bandstands, a fishing pier, and a gathering every Thursday night of musicians and singers from all over Florida and the world. If you're hiding an instrument, be sure to bring it with you and join in.
It's a longer walk or a short drive to Fishermans' Village with its many shops, fun restaurants, entertainment, and marina. Drive 5 - 10 minutes to choice of grocery stores, the Walmart, etc. Driving 30 or 40 minutes in any directions will take you to some wonderful spots such as Boca Grande (don't miss Widen's Marina (truly the OLD south) and its beaches, Englewood beach, Arcadia (the antique capital of the South), picturesque Placida (don't miss the Fishhouse Restaurant) and Matlacha (eat and dance at Burt's Bar), Pine Island, Sanibel Island, Fort Myers, etc. No wonder Punta Gorda has been named by Money Magazine as one of five 5 best places to live in the United States.

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Punta Gorda, Florida
Brights Grove, Ontario.
April 2, 2012
Condo is right beside Convention Centre, and parks, where there is always an entertainment venue, festival, etc. going on, so lots you can do. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars, (not to mention a home made ice cream parlour) If you have a bicycle, bring it, bicycle racks provided) and the Harbor Walk walkway/bicycle way is all along the Peace River Estuary, that is right beside the unit. Fisherman's Village is close by with shops, restaurants, and marina with opportunities for boat tours, and fishing trips. Unit is clean, with ample cutlery, dishes, pots and pans, however, it could use a blender. Sectional couch needs to be replaced, very "soft and punky". Stayed four months, enjoyed our stay, would go back for 3 months next time. (Homesickness set in) Unit lanai look out on Peace River estuary, (great views) Most owners/tenants in this building are very friendly, with pot luck dinners once a month, snack nights once a week, and a morning coffee get together once a month. Heated Pool is nice size, and not too crowded. Some days only a handful of swimmers.
Our thanks to the Colemans, who were great guests and left the condo spotless. Also thanks for the critical comments - (1) didn't realize we had no blender - and (2) we too had been thinking about replacing the sectional - we thought it looks nice, but decided the backs were too low - just didn't have time on our last short stay to deal with it. We'll be down in November and do some shopping to remedy these. We sure appreciate the good comments! As I was working on redoing our listing for this year, I found myself wishing I were there - really a special place in one of Florida's neatest areas. Thanks again, Paul
