What to do in Port Charlotte Florida
If you are a new homeowners in the Port Charlotte area, you may be curious what the locals and snowbirds do around here for fun!
The first answer you will receive is most likely "Get Outdoors" as most activities in Charlotte County involve the outdoors. Fishing, kayaking, golfing, shark tooth hunting, beachcombing, boating, pickleball, hiking, and biking are among the many fun things to do around here.
We also have a local baseball team, the Charlotte Stone Crabs, who play in Charlotte Sports Park (The Stone Crabs were the Tampa Bay Rays minor league team from 2007 until 2020; a new affiliation has not been announced as of December 2020) and the Tippecanoe Environmental Park is a 380 acre upland and wetland hikers paradise.
If you have a business in the area, or are just looking for a way to network and meet others, there are plenty of opportunities for that with local chapters of Lion's Club, VFW, American Legion, along with the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce.
Dining in the area is great, with many local eateries and nationally known chains in the area, including many that are located along Charlotte Harbor or other waterways that give you beautiful views while you enjoy being out.
