Hernando de Soto, Ponce de Leon, Panfilo de Narvaez and others colonized the region in their quest to find gold. This brought the interest for others to explore the continent although not too much gold was found. Then, fishermen coming from Cuba, Bahamas and Spain discovered the abundant waters of the Gulf of Mexico, besides Lemon Bay. After more than 2 centuries of Spanish colonization, Florida was then considered as the 27th state in 1845. Englewood was discovered with 2,000 acres area by the Nicholas brothers who planned to build a city with lemon groves spread all over although the winter frost ruined the groves throughout Englewood in 1894. They aimed to promote Englewood as a residential region considering the great quantity of fish and wildlife in the area good for hunting in a worry-free habitat.

 

Today, four beaches can be discovered in Manasota Key, the Manasota Beach, Blind Pass Beach, Englewood Beach and Stump Pass Beach offering miles of intact scenes of the Gulf of Mexico. The place is an eco destination south of Sarasota and Venice where beaches with rarely attractive sections can be found without worrying about overcrowding, parking struggles and occasional long waits in line to dine or drink, which is normally experienced in well-hyped beaches. Visitors can imagine the place as their own private beach due to the scarcity of people around.

 

The Oyster Creek Golf Club offers shooting a few holes for the golf fanatics, or Manasota Key Road is perfect for the hiking or biking enthusiasts. Native wildlife can also be seen up-close so this would be a perfect getaway to be remembered. The White Elephant pub provides live performers making the nightlife in front the beach a superb spot to enjoy while eating blue cheese burgers. Flounder’s Restaurant and Tiki Bar offers cold beers with shrimp tacos and lobster rolls on a live musical experience.
