DescriptionPunta Gorda, the county seat, is Charlotte County's only incorporated community. The old city dock, on the banks of the Peace River, has been transformed into Fishermen's Village, a marina and shopping complex. Across the street, the Visual Arts Center houses several galleries and features revolving exhibits. The area offers cruises, boat rentals and fishing charters.
A local organization that assists orphaned or injured animals is the Peace River Wildlife Center in Ponce de Leon Park, which attempts to rehabilitate and release native wildlife to their natural habitats; phone (941) 637-3830.
