Punta Gorda Punta Gorda means "broad" or "Fat" point and was named over 500 years ago when it was the landing point for Spanish Explorers. 500 years later it supports a growing population of over 12,000 residents and has been consistently named one of the top places to live in the United States. Located on the eastern shore of Charlotte Harbor at the mouth of the Peace River, Punta Gorda has miles of Salt Water canal and Peace River Shoreline.

The Peace River, Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico are extensions of many "back yards" in Punta Gorda.

A lighted boat parade is also an annual event.
Land wise, Cape Coral is the second largest city in Florida covering more than 114 square miles. The “Cape” is a large peninsula with Charlotte Harbor to the North and West and the Caloosahatchee River to the South. Cape Coral has over 400 miles of both salt water and fresh water navigable canals. Many of the canals offer direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral has four golf courses, a Community Yacht Club and Beach, Numerous community parks and a variety of shopping areas. Housing in Cape Coral includes Condos, Villas, Single Family, New and Custom Built Homes. There are many building lots available both on and off water. The cape is divided into four quadrants; South East, South West, North East and North West.
South East Cape Coral
The South East Cape was the first area to be developed. It borders the Caloosahatchee River and has many direct access waterfront properties. Many of the homes date back to the 1960's. This is an area in transition. Because it has many direct gulf access waterfront properties many older homes are being torn down and are being replaced with upscale modern homes. S.E. Cape Coral's main area of commerce runs along Cape Coral Parkway which is a main East-West artery lined with shops and restaurants and small businesses.
South West Cape Coral
The South West Cape is a fast growing family area with many fresh and salt water canals. There is a large spreader canal that runs along the west coast of the Cape. Much of the waterflow from inland canals is directed into the spreader. This buffers the estuary waters of Charlotte harbor from excess fresh water during the heavy rains of summer and provides a broad waterway for boating. The spreader canal connects to the gulf through a lock.
North East Cape Coral
North East Cape Coral is adjacent to North Fort Myers and the eastern part has taken on some of the bustle and increased commerce that follows Pine Island Road and Del Prado Boulevard. There are still many sparcely developed areas but growth has increased dramatically over the last year as evidenced by many new housing starts. The canals in the Nort East part of the Cape are almost all fresh water canals many of which lead to lakes and the large Alligator slough canal.
North West Cape Coral
The North West Cape has experienced dramatic growth and property price increases between 2001 and today. This is especially true of Property on the west side of Old Burnt Store Road which borders the North Spreader Canal. The North Spreader Canal gives access to the gulf by using a boat lift. The maximum lenght of a boat that can go on the lift is 23 feet in length. A new shopping center is being built at the intersection of Burnt Store Road, Pine Island Road and Veterans Parkway. Much of the growth is attributed to the New Veterans Parkway which provides an easy commute to Fort Myers
