staging live theater since 1961, and the Cultural Center of Charlotte County
presents classes, lectures and concerts all year ‘round. The Major League Tampa
Bay Rays hold spring training at Charlotte County Stadium, which also is home

restaurant chains and movie theaters round out the recreational choices.
