Did you get treatment for them?

Punta Gorda is very nice. There are breathtaking estates on the water and lovely houses in the Historic Section that are positively charming.

Coincidentally, I began to write this post on another forum, since Charlotte County is in-between Lee and Sarasota, so we don't really have a place. So instead I will post it here.

"There's a place for us, somewhere a place for us."


I want to mention something I've noticed since joining City-Data. I wonder why there are so many negative posts on City-Data about Port Charlotte. It's a very quiet, safe place to live. Like Cape Coral, it has a lot of affordable houses, although Port Charlotte is a much older community. By older I'm talking about the houses & neighborhoods in general, not the people, although some of us might need new plumbing as well.

People will often ask about homes in North Port and Cape Coral, but completely pass over opportunities in Port Charlotte. I have a feeling people that people like Dr. Rain drive down 41 or through a couple of run down neighborhoods and assume the entire county is that way, when there are very nice waterfront neighborhoods with mature vegetation. I can't imagine driving through a town once or twice and making a negative comment like that. I guess on the internet, everyone has an opinion.

Edit: Airport noise? If people care to read through my 4,000+ posts they'll learn that one of my biggest concerns is noise, any noise. I wake up if a cricket chirps. I've lived in 3 different areas of Port Charlotte (off of Peachland, off of Ackerman, off of McCall) and it's one of the quietest places I've ever lived. Of course there are houses near downtown or close to main roads, and there are some neighborhoods close to I-75 where you can hear traffic, but I've never once heard an airplane fly over my house at night.

Thank you for that positive post. I will be down there in a few weeks to look at different neighborhoods.
