Rum Tasting at Alligator Bay Distillers
One of the best things to do with your adult friend during your time in Punta Gorda, FL is going to Alligator Bay Distillers on Marion Avenue in Punta Gorda to taste some of the best rum in the entire country! Head here to check out why the pirates of times past used to drink this rum by the barrel! We don’t recommend having too much, but definitely enjoy the sample, learn about how this rum is made, taste the unusual flavors, and then end with a carefully crafted cocktail that is sure to keep you going all night long.
Head Out on the Water with a Boat Tour
Another fun thing to do during the sunny summer days is to head out on the water with a boat tour on the Punta Gorda coastline. This unique spot of southwest Florida has fewer people, but still has incredible views over the bright blue ocean waters. We recommend hiring a professional boater who can take you out on the war, take you to see some incredible wildlife, and bring you to nearby islands and inlets, like Cayo Costa.
Get a Tan on the Beach
Of course, you come to Florida to get a tan! One of the best places to get a tan is to head to one of the nearby beaches on the coastline and set up an umbrella, put out your chair, get a book, and then sit with your friends and family in the sunshine while watching the waves crash in the distance. There is no more peaceful way to spend your day than to relax on the beach and dig your toes into the sand on a day with bright sunshine and beautiful weather!
Plus, the best part about staying in Punta Gorda is that beaches are never too far away from one another. Head to one of the beaches in the Gulf of Mexico to really get a feel for a beautiful beach that is more secluded and beautiful than the crowded beaches of Orlando or Tampa. We love Englewood as a laid-back and lesser-visited beach in Florida!
Learn a little at the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center
Do you want to have an emotional and fun-filled vacation for you and your children? If so, head to the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center on Burnt Store Road or Placida Road in Punta Gorda and Englewood to learn more about the local wildlife, marine creatures, and the natural area of southwestern Florida. Not only is this a fun thing to do with kids on a rare rainy day in Florida, but this is also fun for adults who want to learn more about the surrounding areas and the natural wildfire, like dolphins, mammals, sharks, and brightly colored fish.
Plus, attached to this educational center is the Alligator Creek Preserve in Englewood, with over 4 miles of trails, Lemon Bay, and recreational activities for kids to do in their free time. Plus, Cedar Point has a native butterfly garden, historical buildings, educational programs, and informational lectures that are fun for kids and adults alike.
