Weekend Recap: Exploring Punta Gorda

This past Saturday we made a quick trip to Punta Gorda and did a little touristy exploring. There’s a brewery there that we’ve been wanting to checkout for quite awhile, so we decided to make a day of it. Fat Point Brewing┬áis about 45 minutes away from us, but I seriously wish it was closer, because it would definitely become a regular spot for us!! I had a beer flight so I could sample a few beers, and we split a tasty pizza. The Big Boca Ale was definitely my favorite, and I was happy to hear they can it as well, so I’ll be on the lookout at the grocery store from now on.

Love that they label each beer since I can NEVER keep track!

They have a fun little outdoor area with all my favorite things: Adirondack chairs, corn hole, and even bocce! Like I said, we would totally be enjoying this place often if it were closer!

Afterwards, we headed over the Punta Gorda’s waterfront shopping area, Fisherman’s Village to browse the cute little touristy shops.

Tripadvisor┬árecently came out with a list of the best ice cream shops in America, and it’s just so happens that #1 is located in Punta Gorda. We’re pretty much the worlds biggest ice cream fans, so we knew we had to go! The view was great, but I have to say the ice cream didn’t compare to my beloved Love Boat Ice Cream :/

Even though I grew up in Southwest Florida, there are still so many nearby places and things on my list to do and see! Hoping that over the next few months, we can check off a few more things!
