Four good beaches are nearby - we like the Englewood and Bocca Grande beaches, (Stumps Pass & Venice beaches are good too) and there is plenty of sea fishing to be found locally from the beach or via boat hire. Bocca Grande has a quaint village and its nice to hire a golf cart an explore the local area for a morning or afternoon - it also has several very good restaurants). Three interesting nature trails are in the vacinity and one is a bike trail, Stumps Pass State Park is to the left of Englewood & the Myakka State Park is about an hours drive inland. Myakka has boat and bus tours to see the wildlife and 'gators.
Busch Gardens is about 1.5 / 2 hours drive just above Tampa, the Henry Ford & Edison country houses are in nearby Ft Myers> Well worth a visit is Ringling House and Arts Centre in Sarasota. The Maritime Centre also in Sarasota should be on your visiting list. Arcadia hosts rodeo events several times each year - you should treat yourself and see one!
Fresh caught fish can be obtained in Placida near the Fisheries restaurant and by Mannesota Key bridge - look for the white building with no shop sign! A Farmers Market type fruit & veg stall called Schecters is off McCall Road near WallMart - it is good, it has a German bread stall too, but it shuts at 4pm sharp unlike the supermarkets and shops that mostly stay open late.
Tennis courts are available nearby. Theatre can be found in Old Englewood and in Sarasota. Travel Details You need a car to really explore the area.
