Englewood is located in two counties - Charlotte and Sarasota, along Florida's Gulf Coast. The uncrowded beach is pure and wide and has excellent facilities. To the south, you will find Blind Pass Park, a fantastic place for shelling and finding sharks teeth. Plenty of golf is available in and around Englewood, and the birding is great. You can try parasailing or rent a jetski. Fishing in Englewood is also outstanding. Several companies will take you out on their boats. Why not try an eco-tour of Lemon Bay? You will almost certainly see dolphins, manatees, and all kinds of shorebirds and wildlife.
