Charlotte County has two notable rivers, the Myakka and Peace. They join to form Charlotte Harbor, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico.  Of the 859.3 square miles, 165 of those miles are water. There are 219 miles of coastline.  The County is approximately 100 miles south of Tampa on the Gulf Coast, located between Sarasota and Ft. Myers; 160 miles northwest of Miami and 120 miles southwest of Orlando. 

Fishing is at its greatest with many marinas and boat ramps located along the Peace River, Cape Haze Peninsula, Lemon Bay and Placida areas.  There are a large number of canals within major residential subdivisions providing access to open water for a significant percentage of the population. Charlotte County also takes pride in its abundant wildlife with approximately 50 parks and recreational areas including a vast wildlife refuge.

Population is close to 150,000 full time residents.  But as with Lee and Collier Counties, that number increases during the winter tourist season.
