Visit Fishermans Village in Punta Gorda, Florida

    By Gary McKechnie

    Located on Charlotte Harbor, you'll find a cool shopping, dining and entertainment complex called Fishermans Village in Punta Gorda, Florida. And while it could be just as pleasing to sit there and watch the water and the the fabulous yachts that tie up here, the villagers think you’d be more encouraged to drop by if there’s something going on.

    To that end, they’ve arranged a variety of concerts, pet-friendly "Yappy Hours," farmer’s markets featuring organic produce and cooking demonstrations, and an open mic night for writers (yes!). In March, there'll be a St. Patrick’s Day celebration featuring the Lee County Pipes & Drums, Marcille Wallis & Friends performing traditional Irish and Celtic tunes, Irish dancers, and restaurant food specials.
