Englewood, Florida, where Life is better at the Beach

Located on Lemon Bay, off the Gulf of Mexico's coast, Englewood remains one of Florida's best-kept secrets. Of course, the town is growing, and more and more people are discovering this area. But compared to Sarasota, Tampa, or Fort Myers, this is still a laid back place to live.

Englewood is a lovely old fishing town that is shared by two counties – Charlotte and Sarasota. On the Cape Haze Peninsula, the location is, fortunately, a little off the beaten path. The beaches are pure and wide and have excellent facilities, and they are fantastic places for shelling and finding fossilized sharks' teeth. You don't need any diving or snorkeling gear to find an interesting shell; just a little luck is needed. That's all. 

Englewood is a small Town

A little over 15,000 residents call that little beach town home.  It is not your typical tourist destination because you don't see any attractions or tourist traps saturating the area. It is a small town that thrives on its nature parks, cultural events, beaches, fishing, and arts offerings. If you need more excitement, try parasailing, rent a jet ski or go on an outstanding fishing or sunset cruise, and you will soon see what we mean.


Englewood, Englewood Beach, Manasota Key, Grove City, Cape-Haze, and Rotonda West are interconnected communities, and Historic Dearborn Street is Englewood's Main Street. Less than a mile south of Dearborn Street runs the county line, dividing Englewood into a Sarasota and Charlotte County section. In a few months, Dearborn Street will look a lot different because the county is spending a significant amount of money to have it remodeled. Come and see!
