Today, Englewood and its year-round residents retain an easy-going lifestyle of a small, close-knit community, which invites family and special guests back each season to revel in the secret it holds dear. This unspoken secret emanates throughout Englewood, a community of communities, setting comfortably on an area straddling two counties, harbored by several small islands and magnificent beaches in a tropical setting.
