Englewood is a taste of “Old Florida” along the Gulf of Mexico, pleasing and surprising residents and visitors alike. Miles of pristine beach offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy fishing, boating, bird watching, shelling, hunting for fossilized shark’s teeth, spotting a manatee or dolphin in the clear waters, or just relaxing on the beach any time of year (did you know that the average high temperature in Englewood is 71° in December?).
Water activities not for you? Pick up your golf clubs and play a round at one of the eight golf courses in town. Check out one of seven sections of the Great Florida Birding Trail located in this area. Public parks such as Cedar Point Environmental Park offer visitors glimpses of bald eagles and migratory waterfowl in the winter months. The Conservancy hosts educational nature walks, open house events at Wildflower Preserve in Cape Haze, and their unique Environmental Safari Walks, just a few of the ways you and your dog could get started enjoying the outdoor activities this community offers.
A vibrant weekly farmer’s market, hidden gems of shops filled with unique items, and a wide variety of top-rated dining options – including some of the freshest local seafood available – round out any resident’s list of must-do items.
