At the end of Harbor Blvd in Port Charlotte, sits the Port Charlotte Beach Complex.  This complex has a lot to offer Port Charlotte residents.  Plenty of parking, several grills and covered as well as uncovered tables.  It has a small beach area, fishing pier, boat launch ramp, pool (yes a pool at the beach!!!) and a Recreation Hall where you can rent for weddings and parties - up to 332 people. I have actually done several weddings at this building, as well as the beach area itself.  It is not uncommon on the weekends to see people out in the waters jet skiing, boating, and simply enjoying the area.  The Rec Hall hours are 9AM to 5 PM on Wednesdays, otherwise it is rented on first come basis. If you are ever in the Port Charlotte Area, check it out! ===================================...

Located at 1020 El Jobean Rd, Port Charlotte, FL - on the north side of the Port Charlotte Town Center Mall While Joe Crackers Sportsgrille and Tiki Bar may be a sports bar (and believe me, there are PLENTY of TV's to watch LOTS of sports!) but one of my favorite reasons to go there are the wings.  I get what they call the Volcano wings, as they are supposed to be hot.  BTW, I've been told I no longer have any taste buds left.  But in all honesty, yes they do have a little kick, but they are sweet at the same time.  I don't get Bleu Cheese or Ranch, instead, I get additional volcano sauce, AND LOTS OF IT, to dip them in.  Boy is that good!  WOW!  Try it, especially if you like a sweet & spicy.  As I said, it also has lots of TV's to watch your favorite sports, large and small.  And if t...

A little south of the main Port Charlotte Town Center Mall, with all the brand name restaurants, there is an excellent Mexican Food Restaurant called LaEsperanza.  It was started in Fort Myers, then expanded into Punta Gorda.  Then they expanded into Port Charlotte.  After Hurricane Charlie severely damaged the Punta Gorda restaurant, they enlarged the Port Charlotte restaurant, and closed the Punta Gorda one.  It is located in the Charlotte Square shopping plaza at the corner of Forrest Nelson Blvd and US 41.  2150 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte.  Do a Google search of the restaurant, you will find many reviews mirror my liking of the restaurant.  I have been visiting either the Punta Gorda or Port Charlotte Restaurants for twelve to fourteen years (I can't remember exactly how long!)  ...

For all of you living in the Port Charlotte area, it is good to know that the health food store located on Tamiami Trail right next to Lowe's sells everything at 10% off every Thursday! That store is Sun Splash! AND you get that 10% off of everything you purchase, including items that you already have coupons for or that are on any other type of sale!!!That is such a great deal that I wait for Thursday every week to get all of the things I love - like those large bars of soap from France in Rose of Lavender fragrance - or lunch, which includes those fantastic feta cheese or avocado wraps from their well stocked deli!!!Be sure to check them out if you haven't already been there!!!

Here in Florida we have a lot of Mexican restaurants, some are good, some are not so great - but one stands out from all the rest: LA ESPERANZA RESTAURANT located at 2150 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte is THE place to go for Mexican food in this area!!! We recently had clients in town from Arizona and took them there for lunch. We informed them that this is as good as it gets here - we don't live in or near Mexico, so we can't judge Mexican food the way someone living in Arizona probably can (unless of course you are Mexican!). They liked it so much that they returned that evening on their own for a second meal! The following day they said that they would rate it in the top 5 Mexican restaurants that they had ever eaten in! Including restaurants in Mexico! That says something for what ...

This is a question I get all the time when I tell people that I am a mobile notary & mortgage notary signing agent.  I am still amazed how many mortgage brokers and even title companies do not know what I do.  I always take the time to explain to them the basic concept about being the last person to go to your client (or you , if you are the borrower) and even sometimes these days, the only person the client sees in the whole process.  I tell them that we explain the documents, notarize them, then return them to the title company for processing and disbursement.  We are not the closing company, but we represent the title company, and as I said, even the mortgage broker him/herself!  If you are a Notary Signing Agent, tell as many people as you can, what it is you do.  It is important th...

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and I think this photo says it all! Port Charlotte is a quiet tropical paradise! With all of the canals that run throughout Port Charlotte, it is a boater's dream come true! The boats have some protection from the force of storm and hurricane winds and yet access to the rivers and harbor. Whether you are navigating down the Peace River or the Myakka River heading to Charlotte Harbor and then out to the Gulf of Mexico, it is a tranquil journey. You travel through breathtaking landscapes and have the opportunity to view our native wildlife on your journey. What a wonderful way to spend a day on the water!!!!
