Why you'd want to live in Englewood
A quaint coastal town that borders both Sarasota and Charlotte counties, Englewood is located on beautiful Lemon Bay with access to the Gulf of Mexico through Stump Pass. The Intracoastal Waterway also runs through Lemon Bay, which provides protective passage for boats from as far north as Norfolk, Virginia to as far south as Key West, Florida. No matter what activities you like to enjoy at the beach, Englewood is one to suit your needs, with four beaches on the barrier island of Manasota Key. Although fishing still plays a part in the local economy, today the area around historic West Dearborn Street boasts home decor and antiques shops, unique restaurants, and a growing arts scene. This laid-back attitude, coupled with affordable real estate, makes this place popular with retirees or families looking for that small-town feel.
