Punta Gorda ranked No. 2 on the USA TODAY 10 Best Small Town Food Scene list. The list consists of the top 10 small towns, each with a population of fewer than 25,000, with big food scenes featuring chef-driven restaurants, local flavors and plenty of variety.
“Our town boasts a bounty of unique, local flavor to share, along with an amazing roster of restaurants offering exemplary food and drink, service, ambiance and experiences,” said Sean Doherty, Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach Visitor and Convention Bureau Interim Director. “We hope to see this contribute to a strong and positive recovery for Punta Gorda.”
