Nestled among river inlets, barrier islands, and back-bay preserves, the area provides numerous photography and sightseeing opportunities. Drop by the wooden waterfront shops and browse for gifts, home decor, clothes, and hobby items. Dine at gourmet restaurants that prepare prime seafood, steaks, and treats, or have a quick bite in a casual village ambiance. You can get out on the water with activities like boating, cruising, fishing, and jet-skiing at the marina, or reserve a guided tour of the area.

  • Great place to visit when you're in the Punta Gorda area. Lots of nice shops with a wide variety of items from food, to clothing, household items, etc. Great location on the water. My only complaint i...  read more »
  • We were on our honeymoon and we were told by locals to stop. We didn't find it worth the trip. Just some shops and a couple restaurants. 
  • Great shopping and even better dining! Many shops from clothing to toys to gourmet olive oils and vinegars. Oil and vinegar tastings are free and the expert sales staff can recommend great pairings. L...  read more »
  • It's a great place to go to relax. My wife and I took a leisurely stroll through the mall looking in the windows of the great little shops. We stopped for lunch at Scotty's Brewhouse, a new restaurant in the mall. The food and service was very good and the view of the harbor was beautiful. On the way back to our car, my wife stopped in one of the boutique shops to buy a blouse she saw in the window as we walked by earlier. The women in the shop were friendly and helpful. We then stopped at the Good Ole Times coffee and ice cream shop for refreshments. As with everywhere else in Fishermen's Village, we found friendly service. All in all, the Village is a relaxing way to spend a few hours in Punta Gorda.
  • This is a nice area with much to offer from charter boats to shopping to fine dining. Ample parking is available close by our you can have your driver circle through and drop you off at you favorite spot. This is a family friendly area but it is on the water so watch the little ones close.
  • Great place for bringing out the family and just having down right fun. Great shops, great deals... well except for that fudge shop... that is very expensive but other than that it's very welcoming
  • Lovely shopping district with a rustic charm. The shop owners are always very warm and friendly, and if you're lucky you'll get to hear the gentleman who performs live on his saxophone in the center. I look forward to the addition of Scotty's brewhouse to the village!
  • Would be a 5 because this place does not make you feel like you are in a store! When you are in florida you don't want to be inside! The Ice Cream shop in the middle does not have the friendliest service. They were actually kind of rude. Otherwise I would highly recommend it!
