We did not discover the Englewood area by accident. Nor is our fascination with this community a recent event.
Our family discovered this Gulf Coast gem more than four decades ago when my father-in-law retired and was looking for a place to spend six months during the winter.
My in-laws made this area part of their dream retirement and enjoyed every moment to the fullest. And the whole family enjoyed vacation time visiting with them in this piece of paradise.
Don't click that back button because you think that this is a site about Florida 55 retirement communities.
On the contrary, we have been visiting this area for years while on holidays. Long before retirement thoughts danced in our dreams.
And if an un-forgettable holiday awaits you, you will discover it here. You will never be sorry.
Englewood is a great vacation destination for travelers of all ages. You will see what I mean when you travel further on this site and Enjoy Englewood Florida!
