Review of Punta Gorda, Florida

Star Rating - 8/11/2014
That's actually only true for 3-4 months of the year - but when it's hot it's HOT! The thermometer will only say 91 or 92 degrees but with the humidity the "feels like" temperature is 110 - 111. We are getting too old to be able to call this enjoyable weather. As for the rain - we have a rainy season - typically June through early October. It used to be a safe bet that there would be a thunderstorm every afternoon, but it has become more intermittent in the past couple of years. But when it rains it RAINS! The winter months - referred to as the snowbird season - is when we have the best weather. It also reminds us year -round residents why we put up with the summer months. Typically high's of 75-80 and lows 45-50. That being said we do have frost and freeze warnings - that's when the orange juice prices increase for those of you not in Florida. Punta Gorda is considered subtropical and even if we don't need shovels - 45 degrees is chilly.
