As a younger person, there are plenty things to do in this town! If you enjoy fishing and walking, there are parks and canals. If exercise is an interest, there are many gyms to choose from and bike trails nearby. Also there are bike paths and sidewalks all over the city! Plenty of places to bring your dog if you like to bring him/her with you while you go out. Restaurants are all around so there is rarely a night where you'll go hungry if you don't feel like cooking.

North Port has wonderful homes, great food and great shops! It is very family-friendly and very safe. It's always clean and beautiful!
Glad to have moved in 3 years ago! Getting better every day! Great neighbors and beautiful serene landscaped boulevards. Atlanta Braves, Lazy River water park, brand new planned downtown, North Port has all you will need! So happy to live here!
