About Punta Gorda FL

About Punta Gorda FL

The name, Punta Gorda, comes from the Spanish, meaning "Fat Point." This historic small town is a hidden treasure of Florida and lies as a “Fat Point,” sticking out into Charlotte Harbor – one of the US’s largest natural harbors.

Centrally located between Sarasota to our North and Fort Myers to our South, Punta Gorda is a delightful location within a comfortable driving distance from Tampa, Orlando and Miami.

We are blessed with Florida sunshine year-round and attract both tourists and new residents alike, who come to Punta Gorda to enjoy the lifestyle that we have become famous for. It is a paradise for fisherman, boaters, sun-worshippers and shoppers alike.

As the only incorporated city of Charlotte County, Florida, Punta Gorda is the vibrant engine of the area. It boasts wonderful restaurants, marinas and a pace of life that people from around the world come to enjoy.

The city offers businesses a year-round clientele, which is made up of local, domestic and international customers. It is also responding to industry as commerce realizes the importance of our location as Southwest Florida continues to boom and grow. We offer a diverse commercial arena; however distribution services, construction, design, retail, hospitality and tourism, health services, life sciences and real estate are the largest industry sectors.
