Punta Gorda, FLThis site is severely outdated and plagued with mi
There is no way Punta Gorda is 29% hispanic as this site claims,maybe 2% hispanic,2% black,Punta Gorda is 95% white elderly retirees,with a median age of 65.
Punta Gorda, FLPunta Gorda is a retirement community!!!
Punta Gorda is the U.S. city with the most elderly residents,mainly mid-westeners and some retirees from middle class to upper class,the city is overwhelmenly elderly,Wich could be a culture shock if you come from a much younger city,the population triples during snowbird season October to May,It's also very conservative/republican and backwards in nature,there is also a large redneck/southern population living in the many trailer parks around the city,you will notice the many lifted trucks with confederate flags flying on trucks and front plates.
There is nothing to do for people under 55 other than drink and fishing,you have to cross the bridge into Port Charlotte for most things like shopping and the very small,run down,town center over there.
If you are an elderly conservative/republican with money to buy a boat,and like to fish and drink all day,you'll be in heaven down here.
