City of Dunedin

Visiting Dunedin

While Dunedin’s past is rich in the history of citrus agriculture, an industry introduced to the area early in the 20th century and spreading across central Florida, the beloved city on the west coast of Florida is today is known for its desirable neighborhoods, beaches, hospitality and the charming downtown core. It is a nationally recognized model for urban redevelopment with some of the finest restaurants in the Tampa Bay area and a variety of cuisines and price ranges. You will find well-kept small parks, seven microbreweries, cocktail bars, coffee and tea houses, ice cream shops, public art, art galleries, gift shops and clothing shops in one of the most walkable cities in the country. Grovekeeper Collective is ½ mile from the east gate to downtown..

It's A Scottish Thing

Dunedin takes pride in its Scottish heritage, a factor that reinforces the image and quality of life of city through its culture, music and special events. Settlers from Scotland spurred the early growth of Dunedin and its quality of life. Even today, the Dunedin Pipe Band is recognized internationally in competition, and the City hosts two major events celebrating Scottish culture every year.

Get Outdoors

The Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, once the rail bed of the Orange Belt Railroad and Atlantic Coast Railroad, runs through downtown Dunedin and throughout Pinellas County offering walking, running and bicycling activity for the public. The linear recreational park connects waterfront parks and direct access to seventy-five miles of walking and bike trails through Pinellas County. Bring your bicycles or rent locally for the day. The trail provides a safe path from the Grovekeeper Collective to Dunedin’s downtown core.

Rich History

At the corner of Main Street and the Pinellas Trail, the train station built in 1924 by the Atlantic Coast Railroad now houses the Dunedin History Museum. The museum exhibits 150 years of Dunedin History, and the history of the native people who once lived in the area. The historic museum facility is well worth a visit as are the friendly staff.
