Are you interested in going somewhere new for your upcoming Sunshine State vacation? If so, we don’t blame you! Although Florida might be your #1 spot to go to with your family for your impending holiday, it can often be expensive, overrun with tourists, and overcrowded. In this case, the best thing to do is choose a lesser-known Floridian city that has everything you want — like bright blue waters, stunning coastline, fresh seafood, and friendly locals — without the throngs of overpriced hotels! Let’s check out the top reason why you should head to Port Charlotte, FL for your holiday. Not only can you enjoy the weather during the summer months and the long days, but you can choose one of our luxurious Port Charlotte vacation rentals that is in the perfect location to explore all that this coastal town has to offer.

Port Charlotte is a small community located in Charlotte County in the Punta Gorda region of Florida. This town was named one of the best places to retire in 2012 and has continued to rise in fame throughout the past decade due to its abundance of nature, stunning coastline, endless things to do, and laid-back vibe. Our Port Charlotte vacation rentals offer the perfect place to stay while exploring the town.
Punta Gorda and Englewood Beach
One of the best things to do during a sunny summer afternoon or fall evening walking along the beach is the Punta Gorda and Englewood Beach area. This area off of the Port Charlotte region in Florida is known for its trails along the coastline, stunning views over the ocean, and perfect vantage point for watching sunset. Check out the Charlotte Harbor Gulf Island Coast and come here in the evenings for a nice walk on the beach, an afternoon for a long bike ride with extensive views, or a morning run during your holiday.
Are you feeling a bit peckish during your holiday? Maybe you are hungry after traveling all day to get to the Sunshine State. If so, we have the place for you! Although this is a chain restaurant, iHOP is a CLASSIC that cannot be beaten! Head here to get your favorite type of pancakes, whether that is strawberry-topped pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, or sweet pancakes with syrup and bananas. There is no better way to start your day than heading to IHOP on Tamiami Trail way and getting an endless attack of griddle pancakes and hot coffee.
Port Charlotte Town Center
Are you in the mood to get some souvenirs to bring back home to your friends or get some local brands to pick an outfit for date night? If so, head to the Port Charlotte Town Center to browse the local shops, vintage stores, chain clothing boutique shops, and much more to find what you are looking for.
Eat at The Grill at 1951 in Port Charlotte
For those who want to find the ideal spot for date night, a fancy dinner with their work colleagues, or a nice birthday dinner with their family, head to The Grill at 1951 on Tamiami Trail way in Port Charlotte, FL. Not only can you rest assured you will get some of the best seafood in the entire coastal region, but you can make sure that you get great vibes and a relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for a fine dining night or a laid-back experience.
We recommend starting off your evening with a specialty martini. You can’t go wrong with a dirty martini with extra olives! We love Patricia Dean with chocolate vodka, creme de cacao, and chocolate syrup. We also really enjoy The Rat Pack, a martini filled with vanilla vodka and Bailey’s that is sure to start your evening off right!
For dinner, try the 1951 crab cake or the fresh jazzy mussels with cherry tomato and fresh corn on the cob to split with the table. You can also get the pork belly wonton crisps or the crusted goat cheese to split with your date or the table. For the main dish, there really is nothing better than some of the fresh seafood. We love the grouper filet, sed crusted ahi tuna, or the seared sea scallops with bacon jam to create an unforgettable night with your party.
