Englewood is so lovely that two counties – Charlotte and Sarasota along Florida’s Gulf Coast – insist on sharing in its beauty. Englewood’s uncrowded beach is pure and wide and has excellent facilities. Just south, you’ll find Blind Pass Park, a fantastic place for shelling and finding those exciting sharks’ teeth. Plenty of golf is available in the area as well, and the bird watching is fabulous. You can try your hand at parasailing or rent a jetski and explore the beautiful gulf coast. The areas fishing is also outstanding and there are several charter companies that will take you out on their boats. Embark on an eco-tour of Lemon Bay. You’ll almost certainly see dolphins, manatees, and all kinds of shorebirds and wildlife.

Englewood is divided into a variety of non-waterfront and waterfront communities. Some of the more well-known neighborhoods are Manasota Key, Olde Englewood, East Englewood, Rotonda West, Placida, Cape Haze, Grove City, Gulf Cove/South Gulf Cove, Little Gasparilla Island, Knight Island (aka Palm Island), and Boca Grande.

Compared to the rest of the country, Englewood’s cost of living is 5.40% which is lower than the U.S. average.  Englewood has 9.79 square miles of land area and 3.26 square miles of water area. As of 2018, the total Englewood population is 14,863.
