Located in the heart of historic Punta Gorda, Laishley Park is a picturesque spot for a leisurely stroll, picnic or daily constitutional. This area is just one of the many reasons why a stay at Shell Creek RV Resort is pleasant, indeed.
Shell Creek RV Resort lies in Punta Gorda, a town with a fabulous hangout called Fishermen’s Village. It’s the perfect place to stroll, shop, dine and watch the sunset.
You’ll find no better time to stay at Shell Creek RV Resort than during Founders Day Week on December 1 to 7. It will involve seven glorious days of yuletide festivities and tours that are sure to fill your heart with the joy of the season.
“Fermentation may have been a greater discovery than fire” David Wallace once said.
Nestled along the banks of Shell Creek, where our lovely resort gets its name, our community is a 55 plus community that enjoys a relaxing retreat here in Central Florida.
Who doesn’t love Muscle Cars, Classic Cars and Hot Rods? If we don’t own one, we dream of owning one, or reminisce of that special car of our youth. Well, if you’re in the Punta Gorda area you’ll find car heaven at Muscle Car City. There are car shows and auctions several times a year so check their website for special events. Fortunately you don’t have to attend a show to enjoy the beauty and power displayed there, just visit Muscle Car Museum.
Residents of Shell Creek Resort know they’ve got the the best of both worlds. In addition to all the benefits of living in Punta Gorda, the community of 55 plus active adults have the added advantage of the RV lifestyle. The low cost of RVs and Manufactured Homes helps free up expenses for those on fixed incomes. Plus the amenities and planned activities offered by Shell Creek contribute to an active, healthy, relaxing retirement.
Things are jumping at Shell Creek and it all begins with the Welcome Back Dance this Friday, Dec. 12th. Gather with us in the Rec Hall as we welcome back our winter guests and dance the night away to music from Heart and Soul. You’ll get another chance to visit with friends and neighbors at the Wine and Cheese Mixer on Wednesday, Dec. 17th, by the pool. Every month on the third Thursday it’s time for Road Kill Dinner. I’ve been assured everybody loves the hot dogs, chili dogs, sausage, and anything else that’s on the menu. This months it’s on Dec 18th. A more traditional dinner is planned for Christmas. The Recreation Association provides the turkey and residents bring a side dish or desert. We will gather from 2 - 3 pm in the Shell Creek Clubhouse.
