An intimate community atmosphere offers residents’ tropical beaches, splendid parks and recreational areas to use for all kinds of outdoor activities. Miles of unspoiled beaches, world famous fishing, sailing and boating are a few of the amenities offered to the more than 44,000 year-round residents. Located directly on Lemon Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, this unincorporated community straddles two counties - Charlotte and Sarasota. Literally surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, Englewood has been called the “Gem of the Suncoast”.

Much of the area’s housing enjoys close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, the Barrier island of Manasota Key between the Gulf and the Intracoastal and on or near the Intracoasta/Lemon Bay. Vacationers are treated to a variety of resort accommodations and quality restaurants.

Englewood has 4 beaches on the barrier island of Manasota Key. Englewood Beach and Stump Pass Beach both offer a variety of amenities. Manasota Beach boasts 14 acres of gulf front beach and sand dunes with special areas set-aside for sheltered tables, barbecue pits, boardwalks and bathhouse facilities. Blind Pass Beach is ideal for swimming, fishing and has more than 60 acres of nature trails. There's a docking area for boaters on the Intra Coastal Waterway.

The weather is near perfect, with temperatures averaging 64 degrees Fahrenheit in January while August averages 81.9. During the summer months, late afternoon showers with breezes from the Gulf of Mexico act as natural air conditioning.

State Road 776 provides convenient access to Englewood, connecting with U.S. 41 and I-75 via Jacaranda Boulevard (Exit 35) or the River Road connection with I-75 (Exit 34). Interstate Highway 75 traverses the county in a north/south direction. U.S. Highway 41 (also known as Tamiami Trail) is the other main north/south route. It runs and even parallels the ocean from Tampa to Miami.

Southwest Florida International Airport offers jet service and connections to areas all over the world from its facility southeast of Englewood and near Fort Myers. Residents and visitor often use the Sarasota/Bradenton airport as well.

Englewood’s shoreline borders the Gulf of Mexico, the Intracoastal Waterway, Charlotte Harbor and the Myakka River. Many consider this region a waterfront paradise for both saltwater and freshwater fishing, cruising, sailing and the great outdoors. Few places in Florida can boast of so many tropical beaches like Englewood Beach, Manasota Beach, Blind Pass and Stump Pass.

For the natural beauty of Florida and its wildlife Englewood is rich with parks. Cedar Point, Don Pedro Barrier Island, Indian Mound Park, Kiwanis Park and the Lemon Bay Park and Environmental Center are worth checking out. Also close at hand are the Oscar Schere State Recreation Area and nearby Myakka River State Park for kayaking, canoeing and hiking.

Prime fishing is found in Lemon Bay and Stump Pass. As an aquatic preserve, Lemon Bay is also an underwater ecosystem of mangrove, sea grasses and oyster communities. Golfers abound with eight golf courses in Englewood alone and many more in the surrounding towns.

Residents enjoy good hardball with the minor leagues in the summer months (former home of the Texas Rangers in the spring) at the Charlotte County Stadium Complex on State Road 776.
