Well, for starters, Dunedin is one of the few open waterfront communities from Sarasota to Cedar Key where buildings do not completely obscure the view of the Inter Coastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. This can be one of the reasons why the residents of Dunedin are a happy bunch, with endless sunsets and beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico. Because of this, Dunedin is home to several beaches, including the Dunedin Causeway, Honeymoon Island, and Caladesi Island State Park, which is consistently rated among the best beaches in the world.
If the white sands and tropical beach scene isn’t your thing, perhaps the unique in every aspect, from shopping on Main St. to relaxing on Caladesi Island (number one beach in America 2008) to enjoying waterfront dining near the city’s quaint Marina district. Known for its vibrant art scene, quaint galleries and lively downtown the city also hosts 25 festivals annually. There is literally something to do every weekend!
Voted “Best Little Walking Town in America” by Walking Magazine, Dunedin, FL intersects with the popular Pinellas Bike Trail…a 37 mile trail up and down the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. You can find fitness enthusiasts from all walks of life utilizing the beautiful scenery. Heres one of our favorite videos from a local biker:
Sports Fan? Dunedin is one of the smallest communities used by Major League spring training teams and is home to the spring training home of the Toronto Blue Jays since 1977.
Well, we are getting hit hard with COVID so sports may not be the best selling point of this small town, but there is a LOT of beer! More than 30 local breweries are scattered throughout the area, maybe of which you can find right off the Pinellas trail!
We hope you like Dunedin, Florida and if you haven’t had a chance to visit and grab some of the best ice cream around, look for the lineup on the corner of downtown Dunedin! We might see you there!
