MANASOTA KEY is an enchanting barrier island off the coast of Englewood where there are no high-rises and no traffic lights, just a two-lane road and pristine beaches. There are low-rise multi-family condos and apartments on the south end of the island. The north end has private homes on one-acre lots, tucked behind lush tropical foliage. Several quality restaurants are nearby.

ENGLEWOOD is known as the "Gem of the Sun Coast", "the Heart of the Sun Coast", "a bit of Heaven on Earth",, "a place unspoiled by high rises and high prices", and "where the livin' is easy". Englewood is a community of communities, set comfortably on an area straddling two counties, harbored by several small islands and magnificent beaches in a tropical setting. Englewood is a beach community that thrives on its cultural events, nature parks, beaches, fishing, boating, and so much more.

Located on beautiful Lemon Bay, off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Englewood is just a short 85 mile trip away from metropolitan Tampa Bay, 90 miles north of Naples, 50 miles north of Fort Myers, and only 35 miles south of Sarasota. Englewood is easily accessible from U.S. Route 41 or Interstate 75.

Englewood has 4 beaches on the barrier island of Manasota Key. Manasota Beach and Blind Pass Beach both offer a variety of amenities. Manasota Beach boasts 14 acres of gulf front beach and sand dunes with special areas for sheltered tables, barbecue pits, boardwalks and bathhouse facilities. Blind Pass Beach is ideal for swimming and fishing and has more than 60 acres of nature trails. There's a docking area for boaters on the Intra Coastal Waterway.

Englewood Beach offers recreation areas, boardwalk, picnic tables, and concession stands as well as conveniently located nearby restaurants, shops, and nightclubs. Walking south from Englewood Beach is Stump Pass Beach; a narrow strip of sand that offers anglers a great place to fish.

The Southwest Coast of Florida, and Englewood in particular, has a variety of shells for the serious or just fun-loving shell collector to find. Many of these shells not only arrive on the beach intact, surviving the trip to shore, but are still inhabited and very much alive. Many shells found on Englewood beaches are the Left Handed Whelks, the Auger shells, Coquina shells and, caught at low tide, the Rough Scallop and the Fighting Conch that are great for chowders.

Another common find is Shark Teeth that usually come ashore after a storm. Some of these shark teeth are over a million years old, black and brown colored, ranging from a tiny 1/8th inch to three inches long.

Celebrated every Labor Day Weekend, Englewood commemorates the pioneers who were responsible for its origin in 1896. Golf and fishing tournaments, boat races and a huge parade bring this community to life. Other annual celebrations include an Art Guild Show, Seafood Festival, July Beach Bash with Fireworks, as well as the annual Turtle Watch when Sea Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand.
