Right at the edge of downtown Punta Gorda, past Gilchrist Park, and past the beautiful row of colorful houses across from it, you'll find yourself in front of a magnificent blue complex, known as Fisherman's Village.
If you're pressed for time and can only go to one place in Punta Gorda, this is your need-to-see destination. Fisherman's village contains all of Punta Gorda's best qualities in one convenient place. With over 30 shops and restaurants, occasional live entertainment, and a rich history of the shopping center's origins, boredom is a word that's rarely heard here!
Fisherman's Village Highlights
As Punta Gorda's largest shopping center, Fisherman's Village has no shortage of places to pick up some gifts for your family back home. If you've got a funny bone, there is a shop that has just what you need. With shelves full of funny gag gifts to prank your friends, ridiculous bath mats and t shirts, and other items of the like.
Looking for Food or Treats
Once inside, if you have a sweet tooth, you're in luck! Fisherman's Village is home to Simply Sweet: a cafe specializing in deserts and other confections! If you can think of a food that makes your sweet tooth get a cavity, they've got it. Along with ice cream, flavored popcorn, taffy, and tons more.
But, if you're looking for something a little more low-key, then the Good Ol Days Coffee shop may also be a place of interest. This stylized, traditional coffee shop is sure to give you some nostalgia, or just make you feel right at home! Along with just coffee, they also serve minor pastries, and ice cream.
But, if it's a solid meal you're looking for, the village has no shortage of that either!
