Dunedin, Florida

Dunedin is one of the greatest little towns in Florida… and possibly the country.

welcome to Downtown Dunedin

Downtown Dunedin’s village quaintness often feels like a theme park, with it’s active community participation, progressive vision and masterful planning.

Dunedin also sets the standard for neighboring communities along the Alt. 19 corridor, from Tarpon Springs in the north, and Clearwater in the south, creating a 15 mile stretch of paradise.

LOCATION

Located on the Gulf Coast waters, minutes away from white sand beaches and the Pinellas Trail cutting through the heart of Downtown, Dunedin is the most comfortable town in Pinellas county.

Living in Dunedin puts you just 23 miles from Downtown St. Pete and only 25 miles from Downtown Tampa.  You’re also less than 2 hours from Disney and all the major theme parks.
