One of the many things I love about the City of Punta Gorda are the 18 miles of Bicycle and Pedestrian trails and paths that connect the city's neighborhoods.  You can walk or bike between restaurants, along the Peace River and all over town.  You can also rent/borrow bicycles at various locations.  You can pack a lunch and stop at one of our beautiful parks, many of which are pet friendly.  For more information about the paths, visit http://www.ci.punta-gorda.fl.us/depts/growthmgmt/ringaroundcity.html OR http://www.mapmyride.com/us/punta-gorda-fl/ .  You can also find other tour information by visiting http://www.puntagordachamber.com
