I Want a Vacation!


Located on Lemon Bay, off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Englewood remains one of Florida’s best-kept secrets... But not for long, the area was recently named as a "Top Ten U.S. Destination for 2009" by TripAdvisor™ TravelCast. Englewood is a beach community which thrives on its nature parks, cultural events, beaches, fishing and arts offerings.

Englewood, Englewood Beach, Manasota Key, Grove City, Cape-Haze and Rotonda West are interconnected comminities. From shopping on Dearborn Street to the old Florida beach town style of Englewood Beach, you'll find a relaxed, refreshing view of Florida.
