Fishermen's Village in Punta Gorda Florida is a unique harborside shopping mall, marina and vacation resort.  Built on the site of the former municipal pier, the facility was designed as a replica of a traditional fishing village.  A series of wooden building house several dozen boutiques and gift stores, as well as three restaurants which provide dining with harbor views.  Adjoining the mall is a 97 slip marina, where sightseeing cruises and fishing charters are available from the King Fisher Fleet.  The second floor of the complex houses 47 vacation villas.  Fishermen's Village is not only a tourist destination, but the Village "center court" hosts entertainment and other local events.
