I have lived here my whole life and I love this town! The beaches are beautiful and I know almost everyone here. The schools are good and there are a few little parks. It’s a very safe place to live and I have never felt unsafe here, even getting out of work at 10pm and walking to my car doesn’t worry me. The downside is that during season the town is overrun with snowbirds and the traffic is horrendous. There is not much to do unless you are 65+ (which most the population is). The town is growing though and being taken over by retirees, it’s kind of sad to see my hometown change so much.

Englewood is a nice, quiet town right on the beach. There are a plethora of great restaurants in and around the town. The community is very friendly. There are numerous festivals and activities throughout the year, including speed boat races, Pioneer Day, and various car shows. The Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays spring training are both nearby. It is less than two hours drive from Tampa, FL and Fort Myers, FL. It is less than 4 hours drive from Miami, FL and Orlando, FL.
This beach community is beautiful. Englewood provides a safe, relaxed feel while providing access to A- rated schools and hospitals. The people in the community support local business owners and the local business owners support and sponsors after-school programs, sports programs, and people in need.
