Come check out Englewood homes and find a stunningly beautiful Old Florida beach town. Located on the shores of Lemon Bay, much of Englewood real estate is either right on the beach or a quick walk or drive away. Because the beach is so close, many Englewood residents enjoy watersports, like stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, parasailing, or just swimming and splashing in the waves. For those who want to learn more about the waterbirds and other creatures in the area, Lemon Bay Park is the place to go. There are lots of trails for walking and signs identifying birds, iguanas, butterflies and more. Cedar Point Environmental Park is another great place to go and offers guided walks for those who want to learn local natural history.
In addition to the natural beauty, people living in Englewood homes will also enjoy great shopping and dining options. There’s grocery shopping at Publix, and Walgreens and CVS are good options for drug stores. Bealls Outlet offers goods for the home, clothing and shoes. There are lots of seafood restaurants, including Snook’s Bayside Restaurant and Bar.
If you’re looking for fresh fruit and veggies, head to the Englewood Farmers Market on Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. There is also great live music and vendors selling everything from prepared foods to jewelry and crafts.
