The Punta Gorda Region
Situated on the southwest coast of Florida along the beautiful Charlotte Harbor, the City of Punta Gorda offers residents and visitors alike acres of waterfront property, hotels, shopping and restaurants. Punta Gorda is located in Charlotte County and serves as the county seat. In 2004, the city experienced extensive damage from Hurricane Charley, a category four hurricane. Many of Punta Gorda’s homes, buildings and historic landmarks were destroyed by the storm. An extensive recovery and rebuilding process has taken place to revitalize the city while preserving its historical past.
Located between Fort Myers and Sarasota, Florida, the City of Punta Gorda is within close proximity of the Southwest Florida International Airport, one of the state’s largest airports. Tourism, real estate, retail and business services drive the local economy. The population of Punta Gorda was estimated to be 17,172 in 2013 according to the U.S. Census Bureau, representing a 3.2% population increase from 2010. With 47.9% of the population 65 years of age and older, the city is a popular location for retirees seeking sunny skies in a small town environment. In 2013, Punta Gorda was named a finalist in the Rand McNally Best of the Road search for the Most Beautiful Small Town in America in recognition of its incredible waterfront views, gorgeous sunsets and tremendous sailing and fishing opportunities.
