Local Area Information
Nestled on Florida's beautiful west coast is one of the best kept secrets in the world. The town of Englewood, FL is a vacation paradise and resort destination for visitors who flock to the Suncoast to enjoy the beaches, and other natural treasures of this area. Most points of interest are accessible along The Lemon Bay/Myakka Trail - Scenic Highway. The Scenic Highway takes you off the more heavily traveled US-41 and makes its way through the Englewood and Cape Haze areas.

The Trail also includes SR-777 and SR-771 leading through Manasota Key out to Gasparilla Island and the town of Boca Grande.
