Port Charlotte is a city in Southwest Florida located roughly 30 miles north of Fort Myers and 40 miles south of Sarasota on the gulf coast of Florida. Port Charlotte boasts a growing population of 46,451 (2000 census). Port Charlotte became nationally recognized when in August, 2004, Hurricane Charley, took a last minute turn and devastated the area and surrounding city of Punta Gorda.
A town boasting a population of approximately 45,000, Port Charlotte has become a tourist destination for many who want the beauty of Florida, but not the tourist crowds of Orlando or Tampa. Nestled in Charlotte Harbor, visitors can take cruises through the harbor, play a round of mini-golf or swim in the harbor.
