Charlotte County Reviews

I was raised with a father in the military and have been many places -- moving almost every 2 years. I moved here when I was 17-years-old and fell inlove with the area and the people. I love the laid-back, relaxing feel of the area. Love being able to go to a waterfront restaurant, eat fresh seafood and listen to area musicians at most of the local pubs. Beautiful skies, great weather, best place I have every lived.

My neighborhood is nice, quiet. And relaxing. The only thing I would change is for there to be more dog stopping stations as we are a pet friendly area.
