- Saturday, October 17 – Historic, Watery and Artsy Punta Gorda
The monthly Edison Ford Director Tours for 2015 – 2016 kick off in October with a full day in Punta Gorda, including a Narrated Trolley Tour of Historic Downtown, a cruise of Charlotte Harbor, Fisherman’s Village shopping, private lunch on the river, the Visual Arts Center for pottery demonstrations, and a tour of the Peace River Wildlife Center for Birds.
Punta Gorda (Spanish for “fat point”) is located on the shore of Charlotte Harbor. It was founded in 1884, a year before Edison’s arrival in Fort Myers. Since the storms a few years, the town has undergone a beautiful restoration and we will learn about its importance and long history.
Our tour bus will depart from Edison Ford for this fun-filled day tour. Contact Nancy Achter at email@example.com or 239-334-7419 for further details.
