About Port Charlotte
At first glance, one might think of Port Charlotte as a sub-tropical golfer's getaway considering the plethora of golfing options in the area, but there is more to this southwestern Floridian jewel than golf. Located at the northern tip of the scenic Charlotte harbor directly across from Punta Gorda, the city is perfectly situated to offer visitors everything from fishing trips sure to delight any angler to its own family-oriented beach park. While the variety of fishing trips won't disappoint, the rest of the family might enjoy a day at the splendid Port Charlotte Beach Park or any of the spectacular beaches that Florida is famous for. Of course, beaches located in a tranquil bay aren?t ideal for surfers, but they're more attractive to families with young children. Families with children can also opt to visit Kidstar Park, featuring numerous activities, a 4 story play gym replete with a 32-foot rock climbing mountain, and a go-kart race track. Visitors looking for cultural attractions in Port Charlotte won't be disappointed. Musical options include the Bluegrass Musical Jam Session and the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra as well as a host of other musical flavors that are well represented in many venues. Port Charlotte also has a cultural center which can be a gold mine for those interested in the arts. One can find everything from theater to art shows on their ever-expanding calendar.
