North Port: An Up-and-Coming Community

North Port may have been known by the longer name “North Port Charlotte” had it not been for its dedicated residents, retirees, and a 1974 consensus. The more trendy and unique “North Port” moniker better fits this town, which is known for its local arts and refreshing mineral springs.

This city offers what many home buyers are searching for: plenty of outdoor amenities, rich arts and culture, community activities, and annual events. Discover why North Port may be the community of your dreams.

Things to Do & Places to See

To accommodate growth, the municipality has even annexed nearby locales like Warm Mineral Springs, which is home to a notable artesian spring. The relaxing waters are known for their healing properties as well as their archaeological significance.

There's Even More to Love


The North Port community is home to 5 elementary schools, a public charter school, 2 middle schools, and a high school. Nearby are several higher education institutions, including Southern Technical College, Charlotte Technical College, and a State College of Florida campus.


North Port is known for its natural beauty and outdoor amenities. Many subdivisions are filled with sturdy oak trees, majestic pine trees, and beautiful palm trees. The city's 80 miles of canals and 9 miles of Myakkahatchee Creek are ideal for exploring. In addition, North Port is the only Florida city that is home to an entire state forest. It's no wonder that the city's most popular activities — kayaking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking — take place outdoors.

Arts & Entertainment

In addition to North Port's parks and preserves, the city offers amenities for those who enjoy arts, culture, education, and history. Popular local attractions include the North Port Art Center, the Freedom Festival, Poinsettia Festival, and Garden of the Five Senses.


North Port is located in southern Sarasota County and just north of Port Charlotte. When it was first developed in the 1950s, North Port was a remote area, filled with cattle land and pine trees. Today, it's a rapidly growing community of more than 62,000 residents in an area covering more than 100 square miles.
