Welcome To Dunedin Florida

Dunedin is a quaint and charming town with a breathtaking waterfront, an easy-going lifestyle, and a strong sense of community. It is one of the few open waterfront communities from Sarasota to Cedar Key where buildings do not obscure the view.   The small city of approximately 36,000 residents offers a vibrant art scene, charming galleries, and a lively downtown with 25 annual festivals.  There is also the Dunedin Downtown Market in Pioneer Park on Fridays and Saturdays. While walking Main Street, you’ll see unique restaurants and watering holes with an abundance of craft beer along with many boutiques and vintage shops.  Dunedin is not the typical small town that goes to sleep when the sun goes down. You’ll find a variety of restaurants, nightclubs, pubs, and breweries (Free Brewery Map) open well into the evening with both indoor and outdoor seating – all within walking distance. Dunedin was recently Voted “Best Little Walking Town in America” by Walking Magazine. Located on the Intracoastal waterway, just blocks from downtown Dunedin lies the public Dunedin Municipal Marina, with boat slips, sailing, fishing, and sightseeing charters.

And let’s not forget Rover.  Dog friendly, Dunedin has earned the name “Dogedin.”  There are numerous restaurants, pubs, breweries, and stores that will welcome your visit with your favorite canine buddy and Downtown has multiple watering stations for your pal too.  Some restaurants even offer dog menus when eating outside!

According to Areavibes, Dunedin has a Livability score of 88 and is the number 19 ranked city in Florida.  Areavibes derives this score from several factors including amenities, cost of living, crime rate, employment, housing, and schools. Located just north of stunning Clearwater Beach and south of historical Tarpon Springs, Dunedin is just 25 miles from Tampa.

Dunedin boasts some truly lovely parks, including playgrounds and a park for the four-legged members of your family. But if you want to escape life’s hustle and bustle be sure to visit Dunedin’s beautiful Honey Mood Island State Park.  The park has more than four miles of beach to explore and a three-mile trail through a pine forest.  Shelling is particularly good at Honey Mood Island as the Gulf currents deposit a vast array of seashells.  Bring your pooch along who will be sure to love the park’s Pet Beach.  From Honey Moon Island, take a 20-minute ferry ride to enjoy the unspoiled beach at Caladesi Island.  On pristine Caladesi Island State Park, quiet paths lead along the dunes, palms stand against the warm coastal breezes, and shorebirds and sea turtles live without interference from people and water laps against beaches sprinkled with scallops and sand dollars.  Both of these islands are unspoiled by any development. Swim, fish, snorkel, kayak, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

If all of that isn’t enough, the Pinellas County Trail cuts right across Main Street. The Trail stretches 38 miles from St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs offering the outdoor activities enthusiast jogging, biking, skating, and walking.  Maybe golf is your thing.   Hit the links at the Dunedin Golf Club, a course designed by Donald Ross and the original home of the PGA of America.  Baseball anyone?  Dunedin is home to the Toronto Blue Jays for Spring Training and year-round for the Dunedin Blue Jays.

You may be wondering why you occasionally hear bagpipes in this town.  Dunedin is proud to be the home of the Dunedin Pipe Band, winner of several awards and world championships.  Bagpipes you ask? Well, Dunedin has an interesting history. It was originally named Jonesboro by George Jones, the owner of the area mercantile at that time. Two Scotsmen later named the settlement Dunedin (pronounced DONE-EE-DIN). The name is taken from Scottish Gaelic Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic for Edinburgh. With a dock built to accommodate larger sailing vessels, Dunedin became an important trading center and at one time it had the largest fleet of sailing vessels in the state. Dunedin is proud of its rich Scottish heritage and celebrates it annually with several events, including the Dunedin Highland Games & Festival in the spring and the Dunedin Celtic Music and Craft Beer Festival in the fall.
