Englewood, including the Lemon Bay area and Manasota Key, is a relaxing haven along the Gulf of Mexico between the busy metropolitan centers of Tampa and Fort Myers. Miles of beautiful white sand beach and sparkling water are the setting for a myriad of activities for swimming, boating and fishing to sunbathing and simply walking along the shore.
Many golf courses, as well as parks and recreational facilities of all types, are located in and around Englewood. Historic Dearborn Street has become a mecca for artisans who practice and display their craftwork in shops and at numerous weekend festivals. The Lemon Bay Playhouse offers community productions while Venice and Sarasota, a short drive away; provide entertainment opportunities to satisfy all tastes.
Local restaurants feature “early bird” menus to make dining out convenient and affordable for all. However, even the most discriminating taste can be satisfied by a wide variety of dining establishments and unique café in and around Englewood.
